Walking the Hills in Eugene

One of my favorite things to do when I'm in Eugene is to take long walks up and down the hills. There are steep hills to the east and south of Andi's parents' house. I wish I could take some of them back to central Ohio with me.

Yesterday afternoon I had a chance to get out for a short walk, and up the hill behind the house I went. The weather was cool and sunny, perfect for walking. There were a few dogs and their people about, but for the most part I had the streets to myself.

It's really nice to be in Oregon again. To me it feels like the right place to be.
