Hello From Hood River, Oregon

Here’s how I dealt with the disgraceful Kavanaugh hearings, in a note to my kids, who are now young adults:


Just checking in.

Left Port Townsend about 10 days ago and toured spectacular Cascade region in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Goat Rocks Wilderness, from Mt. Rainier south to Mt Adams.

Now in Columbia River gorge town of Hood River, OR. You’d love it. Lots of brew pubs, wineries, bike stores, books stores, cafe’s, restaurants and outdoors recreational stores with great stuff. I’m headed south over Mt. Hood today and will meander through Oregon cascades national forests to California border over next few weeks.

Some photos – Mt Rainier then Mt. Adams:


Here’s Mt Adams, with a family of six otters in the foreground!


Hope you survived the ugliness of the Kavanaugh hearings.

When you were both very young, your mom and I watched the Clarence Thomas hearings (1991) while on vacation in Ithaca at mom’s friends’ house. Not much has changed, unfortunately.

Check that – it’s gotten far worse across the board: political, ethical, cultural, and sexual. And the glaciers are melting.
