Smoke from the wildfires in California has made its way north to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. The haze is in the air every day and is affecting the Olympic track trials going on in Eugene this week. Of course dealing with the smoke is much better than what they are dealing with in California and I hope they get the fires controlled very soon.
We always see at least one deer along the way. This time we saw two. We live in a fairly populated area, however, it borders a forest so it's common to see deer in yards and even exploring our cul-de-sac from time to time. This time of year they stay up near the trees more where it's cooler.
Nature is so beautiful. Be sure to take the time to enjoy it!
