June in January

June at Timberline Lodge

”It’s June in January…” crooned Bing Crosby in the 1934 movie Here Is My Heart. The photo above is actually June 2021 at Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood, Oregon. By Florida standards it was “January in June,” or worse. Fortunately for us our weather this January has been much milder than June at the lodge, and we are happy to keep it that way.

I do recall frozen winters from my younger days in Nebraska along the Platte River. The story ”Winter Wander,” tells of one of my most memorable winter adventures, complete with an eerie starlit serenade. See: https://eskildoodle.com/winter-wander/.
