May and June are my favorite months of the year. Not because the days are warm and sunny (that is far from the truth in the Pacific Northwest.) I love this time because the skies are still gray but dramatic, the beaches are wild but deserted, and the the trails are open but empty. Soon everything will be overrun by sun-starved people packing as much as they can into the six weeks we call summer up here. But for now, I'll just wander across an open stretch of sand and relish the feeling of solitude.
