A morning hike & porch lunch

July 1st! Sunshine! Long weekend! I'm looking forward to getting outside for some walking around and exploring over the next few days.  And eating outside.  I've been talking about a picnic for months. 

Last weekend we sat on the porch and ate salads after hiking to the top of Multnomah Falls. Mixed greens, sunflower pate, apples, dulse, edamame, and baby steamed beets.

We also spent some time looking out over the Gorge from Vista House:
It was such a pretty way to spend the morning, and only 20 minutes away from home.  We even stopped in at the tourist shop and bought souvenirs (see the mug in my last post). I'm so happy to be back in Oregon.

Hope your holiday weekend is off to a great start!
