Fill ‘er up!

I’m getting ready for a short trip to the southeast quarter tomorrow. It’s a family trip, to climb Mount Ellinor. The boy is 18 months old already – time to climb!

I’ve been thinking about gas prices. The way they have risen so dramatically, they are more of a factor now in decisions about little things, like short trips to the Olympics. What was once a small part of the overall costs, the price of fuel is now a force on the decision-making process about where to go, when and for how long?

The Olympic peninsula was never a crowded place, even when getting there from somewhere else was a cheap ride. With the way things are headed, I think they will become even less busy, less peopled. And that might not be a bad thing.
