California Twenty Twenty

Another summer, another California trip. We go back home. Except Washington is home. Over 14 years now, with no plans to move. I’m not sure when back home is no longer where you grew up? California wasn’t supposed to be

Summer 2022

Summer took forever to start and now it’s taking forever to end. Weather-wise. It’s mid-October now, and the weather hasn’t got the memo that it’s fall. Not cool. Literally and figuratively. And being that it’s mid-October, let’s get right to

Road Tripping 2022

Talapus Lake

This was back in June. I’m playing catch up. I vaguely remember this hike—pictures help. The hike was Talapus Lake. Let’s see what I can pull from the noggin. It was a Friday and I was concerned about parking. Like

Summer of Sixes

It’s summer! And I have big plans. Despite wanting a quiet summer. It’s been years now, where I say I want a quiet summer and then proceed to fill every summer day to the brim. I think I’ve found a
