Hiking on Mt. Hood

I spent this week­end at a cabin out­side of Welches, OR near Mt. Hood. We headed out there Fri­day after­noon and stuck around through Sun­day after­noon. Sat­ur­day and Sun­day were hiking-filled days. On Sat­ur­day we headed out Lolo Pass Road and hiked toward McNeil Point. The weather was flat out amaz­ing. Blue skies, warm temperatures,…

Cathedral Lakes, Yosemite National Park

A cou­ple weeks ago I spent a week at my par­ents house in Cal­i­for­nia. First day there we hiked to Cathe­dral Lakes and back which I hadn’t done since I was a lit­tle kid. Great 8 mile hike up through a for­est and end­ing in a gor­geous alpine lake.

Amsterdam Meetup

I was in Ams­ter­dam with my team at Automat­tic from July 13th through the 20th. We had a great time, ate well, saw quite a bit of the city, and fin­ished some fun projects.

Mount Defiance, in the mist

Spent the first half of yes­ter­day hik­ing Mount Defi­ance with Leah, Luke, and Luke’s sis­ter who’s in town for the week. It was a decent day of weather in Port­land but the moun­tain ended up sur­rounded by clouds and mist. Still a great hike but we missed out on what should have been great views…

A week at the Oregon coast

Last week I spent Mon­day through Thurs­day at a friend’s beach house in Wald­port, Ore­gon. It was a half work week, half vaca­tion week. Snapped a few pho­tos, went on a nice lit­tle hike, and got lots of read­ing in. Good way to recharge the batteries.

Tybee Island Meetup

On Mon­day I got back from a week-long meetup on Tybee Island, GA. I posted some pho­tos while there but this is the rest of what was in the col­lec­tion. The horse mask was a sur­prise left for my co-worker, Hanni. You can get your own on Ama­zon. Most of the pho­tos are from Bonaventure…

Hiking Devil’s Rest via Wahkeena

Got out for a great hike this morn­ing with Daniel and Leah. Hiked about 8 miles in the gorge up to Devil’s Rest. We lucked out with weather, it only started to rain when we were within shout­ing dis­tance of the car.

Budapest Meetup

Pho­tos from last month’s Automat­tic meetup in Budapest. We were there for a week and had an absolute blast. It’d be fun to go back when the weather isn’t so dreary.

More Marseille — Travel Log, Day 9

I spent my last day in Mar­seille see­ing Notre-Dame de la Garde which sits on the top of the high­est hill around and had some ter­rific views of the city. To get up there, my brother and I walked up some pretty steep, San Francisco-like streets. The tower of Notre-Dame de la Garde is capped…
