Summer’s Reach by Josh Brine in Portland

In Oregon, we live for the summer. The flowers are in full bloom, the rivers are warm enough to swim in, the clouds are parted enough to feel the size of the mountains, and everyone lives outside enjoying the beauty we wait for all year. This video is a tribute to memories made this past summer.
