Green Lakes Trail

Last weekend Leah and I were in Sunriver, OR. On Saturday we spent the afternoon hiking up the Green Lakes trail which winds you up the east side of the Cascades between South Sister and Broken Top. The weather was perfect with cool weather and blue skies.

Budapest Meetup

Back in April I traveled to Budapest. It was my second time in the city, the first was for Automattic’s 2011 all-company meetup. This time the trip was for a team meetup as well as the Write the Docs conference. It was also my first trip with the Fuji X100S. I bought this back in […]

Mt. Hood

Hiking to Burnt Lake

One of my favorite aspects of Portland is that, within 90 minutes, I can surround myself with forests, mountains, and wide open sky. Sometimes you just need to get outside. A few weeks ago Leah and I drove East toward Mt. Hood. After a few miles on forest roads we set out toward Burnt Lake. […]

24 hours in Kirkby Stephen

At the very end of our 3 weeks in England Leah and I took the train up to Kirkby Stephen to stay with a college professor of ours. It was a wonderful change of pace from Southern England and London. Kirkby Stephen is just east of the Lake District and is gorgeous. We stayed in […]

While there we wandered around the city and the colleges and took a day trip out to Newmarket and The National Stud horse facility. With the exception of the day in Newmarket the weather was wonderful. Sarah’s […]

Tourist time in London

Before spending time in Bath Leah and I spent a week in London. Overall we spent two weeks in the city in April. It was great to split that time up with breaks in Bath and Cambridge. London is great and all but smaller towns are nice, too. This was Leah’s first trip to England […]

Spending 24 hours in Bath, England

As part of the 3-week vacation I took in April Leah and I spent about 24 hours in Bath, a fantastic city about a 40 minutes by train west of London. I remembered loving Bath when I visited as a kid and it lived up to expectations after returning. Since we were there for just […]

Within Haleakala's crater

Hiking through Haleakalā crater

Way back on March 24th I took a trip to Maui with Daniel, Leah, and Leah. We stayed just south of Lahaina for 8 days in a great condo Daniel found through a charity auction. The highlight of the trip was definitely the hike through Haleakalā crater. We parked the rental car at the Halemau’u […]

Lisbon Happiness Meetup

Back in February I spent a week in Lisbon with a portion of my team at Automattic. We ate great food, completed two cool projects, and generally had a wonderful time. There were 11 of us so we rented out the entire place at TheHouse. Can’t recommend the lodging enough. Truly phenomenal place. One day […]

Snowshoeing through Yosemite

Over the holiday break I spent a week at my parents’ place in California. Got in lots of reading and family time and, on the last day, headed up to Yosemite for a short snowshoe trip. We set out from Badger Pass Ski Area and walked along Old Glacier Point Road before cutting back and […]
