Grayland Beach State Park

Camp Orkila 2021

Leavenworth & Colchuck Lake

Karann and I expanded our hiking adventures back in June, to include traveling to hike. Somewhere along the line, on one of our spring hikes, the idea to head to Leavenworth and hike Colchuck Lake came up. We were both

Last weekend we took off to Steamboat Rock State Park. It’s been on the list since 2017 when we discovered the area driving up to Republic for fossil digging. What a beautiful area, called the Channeled Scablands. We watched a

Camp Orkila Twenty Nineteen

Mother’s Day weekend is Camp Orkila weekend. This has been a tradition since Blaise was three, back in 2013. Brian has since taken each kiddo as they turn three, so this year was Baby’s turn. I tagged along this time
