I can remember back to when this picture was taken by me. This was the first day of an extremely hot summer. My friends and I, drove up to a well- known swimming spot (Fish ladders in Estacada, Oregon). I remember how scared I was because in order to get down to the water, you had to jump off a really big cliff. I was the last person to jump in of course, but that was the best decision I made all day. The freezing cold water felt amazing. The feeling of freedom I had on that summer day, made me realize it was going to be the best summer yet !
