I think I read somewhere that the Jefferson, Oregon Frog Jumping contest (part of the Jefferson Mint Festival) is the second largest such event this side of the Mississippi. It’s entirely possible. I didn’t get an official participant count – but I have no reason to believe that there were less than 100 folks ready to coach their frog to victory. And if you didn’t have a frog with you – they were kind enough to rent frogs. So – for $5 – you could both enter the contest and borrow an amphibian, too.
So – without delay, I’ll just hop straight to a few photos from the afternoon.
(And just in case you’re curious about these sorts of things – photos 1, 3 and 4 were partly processed using the VSCO film emulation package. I just picked it up – and have probably been using it way too much. Hopefully I’ll have a better review of it a bit later.)
