Autumn is nearly here! As of tomorrow, we officially bid farewell to a long summer that has been hot, dry, and smoky - a season that bore too many "days without rain" and left us native Pacific Northwesterners parched and praying for precipitation.
Difficult as it may be to believe, it was only a few weeks ago that we were sweltering in 90-degree heat and coughing beneath smoke-filled skies. Now, the air has cleared, the rain has returned, and a distinct chill in the mornings signals the turning of seasons.
Take a look at the film below, created by Shawn Liebling and filmed in the mountains of Oregon... a cool shower to soothe and refresh the summer-weary soul!
