We had a beautiful day today after several days of rain. I went on a lovely hike in the central Oregon Badlands wilderness area. I have not been hiking much, so this was a shorter hike. I still found it challenging. The wildflowers were beautiful.

It felt really good to be out enjoying nature. Our governor has eased some of the pandemic restrictions, and more trails have opened. I chose this trail, because it is not very crowded at any time. With the easing of the restrictions, we are seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases. But I Think it will be very hard to roll back to stricter isolation measures. Personally, I was thrilled to get my haircut today. The stylist wore a facemask, sanitized in between each customer, only one customer was in the facility at a time.
I hope you are all doing wellg. I am enjoying it much more now that the pollen levels have been reduced, and my allergies are so much better.
