Cascades are open again

The cascades have been closed quite a bit this summer due to the dry conditions. Today they are open, but there aren’t too many people out enjoying them. The photo below is the final drop.

We are here hanging out while my city bike gets repaired at Sic Transit Bicycles. The rear wheel disintegrated this morning. The wheel was probably 24 years old and it just gave up. Several spokes broke and the axle was a mess. I was thinking of replacing it anyways because it wasn’t rolling very well. The bike shop specializes in fixing up classic bikes. I would like them to do a fixie for me someday.
