Keeping Cool in the Sandy River

It has already been an extremely hot summer for most Oregonians and we can expect it to get hotter. Use sunscreen, safety vests and drink lots of water while you enjoy the cool waters of the Sandy River. Read why some people are choosing the Sandy River over the swimming pool below.
Alenjadra Bates chose the river due to its temperature. " The water is a lot colder than the pool," said Bates, who spent her day floating down the river in a raft.  Caylin Smith, who joined Bates on her raft, enjoyed the opportunities the landscape provided. " You can come and jump off cliffs and stuff rather than just a diving board," said Smith.
The Sandy River can be accessed at various points along the historic Columbia River Highway including Dabney State Park.

Corbett's 4th of July Fun Fest | K9 Kings Flying Dog Show


Join the City of Corbett this 4th of July at the Corbett Fun Fest. Watch the K9 Kings Flying Dog Show once, twice you could even watch all three of their performances at the Corbett Fun Fest. The K9 Kings Flying Dog Show is a 30 minute performance that will occur from 12:15 pm -12:45 pm, 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm and one last time from 4:30 on - 5:00 pm, you won't want to miss these amazing dogs. Learn more about the K9 Kings Flying Dog Show below.
Long before J.D. ever watched one of his canines launch into the air, he had an appreciation for terms like Big Air! Hang time! For thirteen years J.D. was a professional snowboard competitor. Thus it seems quite appropriate that his team of canine athletes would continue his tradition of amazing high flying stunts. In the mid 90s, while still an active snowboard competitor he met a disc dog entertainer who introduced him to the sport of canine flying disc.

7 Bikes for 7 Wonders | Mt. Hood Bike Found

video

The Mt. Hood Bike of the 7 Bikes for 7 Wonders campaign has been found. Congratulation to Ben Sherwood for finding Mt. Hood's one-of-a-kind bicycle. Learn about the Mt. Hood 7 Wonders bike below.
Mt. Hood serves as the coolest imaginable backyard possible for Portlanders (and anyone else who visits the area): it’s got so many things to do, and plenty of them can be done on a bike. That was the initial reaction Fred Cuthbert had when he was tasked with designing the perfect bike for Mt. Hood.
“The first thing that went through my mind was that it needed to be able to handle anything, because around Mt. Hood there’s lift-assist, free rides, full downhill… everything, even including all-day single-track rides through the wilderness,” he recalls. And that was perfect for him. “The core principal behind my design has always been to make something that could do anything and everything, so this was the perfect opportunity to put that into practice.”
And that’s what he’s done. His single-speed mountain bike incorporates all his favorite features, and still comes in at an astonishingly light 28 pounds. There are beefy 2.5-inch tires, a suspension front fork with 5 to 6 inches of play, and an adjustable-height seatpost for riding in a bike park or other extreme terrain.
And it looks as singular as it is, with red hubs and a bright “sour-apple green” paint job with subtle black pinstriping around the lug details. It even has a name, etched in red script that matches the hubs: “Bruno,” for the iconic St. Bernard that lives at Timberline Lodge. (Fred’s company name comes from his shop mascot, Duncan. He was pleased to name this bike for “a fellow giant-breed dog.”)
It’s burly but smooth, a ride-it-all-day bike that can go just about anywhere. And it was a joy to conceive and create. “The fun part was that Travel Oregon said, ‘Here’s an area – build a bike for it.’ I got to decide how that area inspires me,” Fred says. “On a project like this, I get to answer all the questions myself, let my artistic impression shine through.”
