No. 38 was another audio book, David Baldacci's Divine Justice:
Divine Justice was the fourth in Baldacci's Camel Club series - good political mysteries!

We went to a Discovery Run and didn't win anything! It seems someone from our group always wins at the monthly running scavenger hunt.
But we still had fun running around Tualatin, collecting raffle tickets as we went. Brad and I misread our map and ended up running about 2.5 miles extra! Good thing it was dark and no one could see us coming from the wrong direction!
Because we went the wrong way - not as many tickets this time:
Even without winning, it's a fun way to get a workout! :)

The THS band holds a huge annual parking lot sale full of donations from band families and such. Last year and again this year, I scored piles of Diane Mott Davidson books! The culinary mysteries are fun, easy reads with good twists and turns.
So No. 37 for 2016 is Dying for Chocolate, which kept me guessing until the end:I hope that band family keeps reading and donating these fun books so I can keep collecting :)

The McKee family camped Labor Day weekend, and Eryn I had a chance to run our 16/18 miler on the Banks-Vernonia Trail. The next day, Brad, Dad and I headed west for a hike up Saddle Mountain.
It was beyond crowded, but it was also beautiful! What a spectacular trail!
Dad and I joked about our luck lately with the cloudy vistas (Pinnacle Peak). Here's the summit:But a local guy was hanging out, promising the clouds would soon lift.
Never fear, the Beer Police are here!
The clouds didn't break, but they did lift enough to show us the coastline, the Columbia River, Astoria, Warrenton and some other far-off sites!
This bit of nature filled my soul! :)
