It was so nice to finally get away to camp in the backcountry. It’s been far too long. I had the chance this past weekend to visit one of my favorite places. From where we were, you could see the tip of one of the highest peaks in the park. The peak certainly wasn’t climbed… Continue reading The view from the bottom
Hey everyone! I felt like I should post an update since things around here have been pretty quiet this summer! About a month ago, I got my head bumped pretty good. I didn’t realize that how I was feeling was connected, but when I finally got checked out, it turns out that I’m healing from… Continue reading Self care
A while back I bought a second hand canoe from a friend. I was thinking of getting a nice lightweight one, but the budget just isn’t allowing that right now. So here I am with this new-to-me canoe! A friend had asked me if I had checked yet to see if it floats. Of course… Continue reading Getting ready!
Leave no Trace
I just had to share this because I wonder sometimes what people are thinking when they leave their garbage behind at a campsite. Recently… (well not too recently… But we were hiding a paddle so I haven’t been able to talk about it until now. Congrats to the paddle finder by the way!) I went… Continue reading Leave no Trace
It’s been a relatively quiet summer; at least as far as any writing goes. I’ve been enjoying tagging along to help hide some paddles for the Paddle in the Park Contest. It’s been a blast! But obviously I haven’t been able to share any info about any trips until after the paddles were found. This… Continue reading Wolf Lake
Killarney pictures revealed!
What a fun trip this was! I’ve been sitting on the pics for a while now. I couldn’t share anything because I tagged along on a paddle hiding trip for the Paddle In The Park Contest! But now that the paddle has been found, I can chat about the trip. Holy moly, this trip kicked… Continue reading Killarney pictures revealed!
I was in a rush this morning getting ready to leave for a trip, so I thought I’d try my hand at vlogging instead! Lol… I think writing might be more my thing! Either way, I’m trying new things for those bugs that get me all the time! Do you have anything that works for you?
It’s always good to be prepared. Not necessarily prepared for what could go wrong, but prepared to change your plans. Ever have a trip where everything that can go wrong does? This last trip just didn’t seem to want to happen. It started with the day before the trip when I came down with a… Continue reading Murphy’s Law
It just can’t come soon enough!
Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t like camping in the cold. (Who am I kidding? I don’t like anything in the cold!) I haven’t even started booking anything for this summer because the weather right now just doesn’t really get me in the mood to go on a trip. A while back I… Continue reading It just can’t come soon enough!
