“Life. Changing.”

This June, I was in Portland, Oregon, with my wife, finally at the front of the lengthy Salt & Straw line, ready to order some ice cream. Despite the wait, the girl behind the counter made small talk with us. Where were we from? Where were we going?

With a look over my shoulder to the line behind us, I replied as concisely as one could.

“From around Chicago. Doing a road trip from Seattle to San Francisco. Hoping the highlight is a stop in the redwoods coming up.”

“Oh, my God. The redwoods are life-changing. Life. Changing.”
