Warning: A NON ART related posting!
It has been a year and a half since the death of my mother Evelyn and finally time to say good bye as a family. On Sunday we gathered at the top of the old McKenzie pass at Dee Wright observatory for the occasion. Close to the mountains she loved we said farewell.
pictured above: Tom, Gale, Mike, Amee, Lee, Lindsay, Kim, Kirsten, Jeff, Chris, Alex, Zac & Hal. Dave & Shannon were not in the photo. Bryant was unable to attend.
We could not have asked for a better day to gather. After Dee Wright, we went into Sisters for lunch. Plans for the part two were settled. On Friday the 11th of August, Tom, Zac, Amee & I will hike to the top of South Sister (mountain in center of above photo) to fulfill the remaining request. Fortunately Amee was up the trail last week with no problems (round trip of 7.5hrs). I’m hoping for a 10 hr round trip if my hip and knees hold up. We will certainly have plenty of snow and mosquitoes to contend with.
