Mount Erie

And Sugarloaf on accident. This hike felt like driving around LA using an old school, paper map. Like back in the dial-up days with printed MapQuest directions. We were confused. At least I was. Karann would have figured it out

April 2021

April gets a thumbs up. It was a productive month. And the weather was… nice. I say that begrudgingly. It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of sunshine and clear skies. It makes me moody (I should be ashamed

Otter Falls

This feels like ages ago even though it’s only been 12 days. I spent the week after on a planning binge, followed by a purging binge, on top of everything life… time flies by. Hell, it’s almost May. I’m pretty

Tulips!

It’s that time of year again, when we go see the fields of tulips. Tulips are my absolute favorite flower. I have a fresh bunch on the kitchen table every week. So of course going to see beautiful fields of

Steamboat Rock State Park

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

March 2021

The things you worry about never happen. This is what my mom always says. Which probably explains why I haven’t died from Covid. Hahaha. Man, what a year. Reflecting back to last March, when life shut down. We really embraced

Pratt Connector to Pratt River Trail

This sucker was all about the bridge for me. Instead of doing anything productive at night—after the kids are all in bed—I lie in bed and watch Tik Tok videos. Tik Tok must have the best algorithms because it knows

Cannon Beach

Last Wednesday I was in a major funk. Emphasis on major. I was already in a mood and it was cold. I didn’t want to hit the trail—the trail always puts me in a better mood. Instead, I parked on

Grand Ridge Park, Again

A week later. This time the goal was to hike from Central Park to Duthie Hill Park. Looking at the trail map, my calculation was about nine miles. Turns out it was more like 11.33 miles. Math has never been

Oxbow Loop Trail

An easy hike—more like a stroll—was on tap for last Saturday morning. Blaise and Laine were at their wilderness class, which left the three younger gals and Brian for me to convince we should head to Oxbow Loop Trail. Baby
