I took this photo driving through the gorge on the morning before they closed highway 84 and the fire spread west towards Multnomah Falls and beyond. It was very eerie driving through that morning and the smell of smoke was strong. I'm grateful the fire is behind us now and some areas and trails in the gorge are re-opening. New beauty will be formed and I can't wait to see it!
We think our grunt sculpin looks like the combination of multiple animals: cheetah spots, frog-like eyes, clownfish coloring on the tail... any other contributors?
Maybe it's destiny or purely coincidence, but Lightning and Solstice are just 50 miles apart off of Bahía Tortugas, Mexico after traveling separate paths nearly 800 miles south.

"I started out investing in single family residential rentals because that is what I knew best as a real estate agent and house flipper. They also performed very well in my market in Northern Colorado right after the housing crash. I was able to buy houses for $100,000 that rented for $1,200 to $1,400 after doing some repairs. I bought 16 rentals from 2010 to 2015, but our market was changing drastically. Our median price jumped from $110,000 in 2011 to $290,000 today. I cannot buy great residential rentals anymore, because rents have barely increased 50 percent, while prices have almost tripled. I stopped buying rentals, because I could not make money on them anymore.
This year I bought four rentals, but they were not residential, they were commercial. I have searched for a new way to buy rentals including looking out of my state. Finally this year I found opportunity and cash flow in the commercial sector." @investfourmore #journeyclaimer
