Last night we enjoyed an evening hanging out at The Bite of Mt Hood. It seems like each year it gets more and more crowded, an indication of how the mountain community is evolving over time. Just a few short years ago the event was held at a different venue and felt much more relaxed, without both a silent and live auction headlining the event.
The food was great, although we all deviated a bit from our plant based diet enough to know that we don’t want to do it often. We felt bloated, high on sweets, and ready for bed all too early. It’s really astounding how much eating dairy now impacts how we feel. Kelly and I did rally once back at the cabin and watched the final four Breaking Bad episodes to finish off the high-octane series.
It was cool seeing many of the people that we know and engage with on the mountain all in one place. I enjoyed chatting with Gary Randall, landscape-photographer extraordinaire, whose work was honored during the evening events. Trevor also managed to find a basketful of goodies to bid on, and once he set his sights on winning it, no one else had a chance!
The shot today of Mt. Hood is in honor of the bite, the mountain community, and our appreciation for being able to spend so much time in such a beautiful place.
