What I Learned About Work on My Summer Vacation

Crater Lake is more beautiful than any of the photos you might have seen – including this one, which I took last week alongside tourists from around the world who were no doubt snapping the identical shot.

That’s just one of the many cool things I learned on my summer road trip. But mostly, I learned to not work – for the first time in years.

Wilderness Fun…In the Office

One of the running jokes my son and I had when he was growing up in Idaho was that every morning, at least one front-page newspaper headline always involved wildlife. Never a slow news day in the Gem State..!

The Backyard Berry Bounty

How cool is it to be able to amble into your yard first thing in the morning and pick fresh berries for breakfast? For a few glorious weeks in the summer, I can choose between raspberries in the backyard and strawberries in front.

The white currants aren't quite ripe enough yet, but soon they'll make the most beautiful, pale pink jelly you ever spread onto a biscuit. I'll dry some of them for use in baking.
