Summer 2015 Bucket List

The weather here has been really nice lately, in fact it has started to feel a bit like summer. When the sun comes out and the temperatures start to rise, I can't help but daydream about the summer adventures that lay ahead. Last summer we did so many amazing things, I'm not sure we will be able to top it. We can sure try though.

Without further ado here is this summers bucket list in no particular order.

1. Watch the local drag races.
2. See a movie at the drive-in movie theater.
3. Go kayak in the Puget Sound.
4. Go to a Mariners game.
5. Ride the ferris wheel on the pier.
6. Run the Dirty Dash.
7. Run the Color Run.
8. Run the Electric Run.
9. Climb Mt. Adams.
10. Climb Mt. St. Helens.
11. Climb one of the Sisters.
12. Explore the Ape Caves.
13. Visit Seaside.
14. Visit Astoria.
15. Go to Wild Life Safari.
16. Ride a camel.
17. Ride an elephant.
18. Camp in a yurt.
19. Fly in a biplane.
20. Ride the Apple Century (50 miler).
21. Ride the Newport Century (100 miler).
22. Hike Silver Falls.  
23. Go on a hot air balloon ride.
24. Hike Driftwood Falls.
25. Go white water rafting.
26. Go para sailing.

29. Go backpacking.
30. Ride my bike around Crater Lake.

32. Go camping.

I think the bucket list is off to a pretty good start. If you have any suggestions of places/things we should see or do in Oregon/Washington let me know, I'm open to suggestions.

What fun things do you have planned for the summer?
