Twas Hot and a Waterfall Was Necessary


When Seattle gets too hot for comfort, we head for the mountains. Which is why your miniseries on shiny esplodey things that aren't fireworks will be slightly delayed - we headed out for an emergency trip to Franklin Falls, and I forgot it's Fourth of July week, so most of you probably won't be paying attention to much anyway. So just picture yourself walking through a beautiful shady forest alongside a rushing mountain river, with the breezes acting as nature's own AC, and at the end:

Shiny esplodey things next week, without fail. And this Friday, thee shall have some fireworks.
