Mushy Ground

Here I will elaborate on the differences between life in the high desert and life in "the valley." During my visit at good ol' George Fox I realized something that I missed about "valley" living that, in two years in the Bend, I didn't realize I was missing: mushy ground. The ground isn't mushy at all here in Bend unless there is snow on the ground. There's nothing like mud between your toes as you are walking through a grassy lawn in a spring shower in Portland. But then again, there's nothing like the snow-capped cascades surrounding Bend on a sunny day.

And then there's Drake Park on a lazy Sunday afternoon...
