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
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!
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
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!

On my last trip I found this ball in the water and it’s been helping tremendously! What do you use to toss your… Continue reading Chuck it ball
Challenges and benefits
I’ve been having fun lately tinkering with videos. I’m not really sure what people like… Videos? Pictures? Text? I’m just going with what I like doing, and I’m hoping that it’s helpful somehow. I plan on doing my thing regardless, being authentic and whatnot; but I always welcome feedback 😊 (and questions! I’m working on… Continue reading Challenges and benefits
How to bathe in the backcountry when it’s cold out
Are you ever out there a while when it’s cold and just can’t fathom going for a swim? This is what I do… What do you do? Do you have any good tips?
Hike to the Crack
I think this post may just be all about the pictures. In my last post I decided to do something different and I featured each campsite I stayed on in a video. The hike to the Crack was so pretty, I’m not sure pictures or a video would do it justice. And besides, it was… Continue reading Hike to the Crack
