It’s only 80 today in Portland, Or….but much hotter elsewhere it appears. So, a suggestive image from 1973 in Eastern Oregon in the Ochoco Mountains…the temps were sub zero those few days…the coldest I have ever been exposed to. Quiet, still, so cold. I clicked a few shots with my old Pentax camera. The first one shows the snow covered Ochoco’s. Hope it gives a moments relief to the heat.

And, the second shot was along the John Day River just up from Dayville, Oregon
