On one of our recent very summery evenings, I drove around the dike-lands that skirt the Columbia River in our area of Oregon. Being a flatlander/farmer's daughter, the straight-ish gravel roads and uber-green pastures remind me very much of summers in Minnesota. The sun was low, the air was warm, the shadows were delicious. In the very distance, the hills of Washington state made a dusky backdrop, rising steeply from the Columbia River.
