Stray socks on Main Street, and being in sync with nature

A friend asked me last week, “Could you write a column about the stray socks I find on my morning walks through Enterprise?”

Mules can make all the difference during a hike in high country 

Hefting 30 pounds is no big thing.

Sometimes.

Hauling a few grocery bags from your trunk to your kitchen, for instance, barely rates as an inconvenience. 

 

Keep Oregon Green — it has been my lifelong mantra

Fall is coming to Wallowa County — when the borrow pits are decorated with shiny cans to welcome the change of seasons.

As soon as I got out my running shoes, Finn would start dancing

Spending the summer months like any other 12-year-old kid in

just can’t help being a 12-year-old kid in the summer, hanging out at the Wallowa County fair, getting ice cream from one of the county’s drive-ins or taking swim breaks at one of the county’s swimming holes.
 

County fair lets one be a kid again — if only for a few days

Ah, the giddiness of county fair time. I asked one young 4-Her how many girlfriends he had at the fair this year. His reply, “None, just two ex-girlfriends.” Not bad for a 10-year-old.
