June 21, 2015, Solstice trip to Maryhill
For the 2015 Summer Solstice, Brandon, Shelley, Sequoia, Ren, and Ben took a short camping trip to Maryhill, Washington, a tiny town on the Columbia Gorge with a nice campground and great views. In addition to the Gorge itself and Mt. Hood to the west, there are wind turbines on the hills to the north, as well as a nearby Stonehenge replica where we performed our Drumming the Eons ritual (a little ways away so as not to disturb the other visitors to the site, which was built as a war memorial).
We also did a YayLifeTri:
- Shelley swam back and forth in the river while Brandon and the boys splashed around.
- We walked back to the campsite.
- Sequoia and Ren biked back and forth to a nearby picnic shelter seven times.
