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.

Dog Mountain


Great hike today with Daniel. Went up Dog Mountain in the Gorge. The sun was deceptive, though, as it was super cold at the top.

Mt. Hood Hiking

Mt. Hood

Took advantage of the wonderful weather yesterday to do a short hike on the Timberline Trail. Topped the day off with a 3-mile run and a delicious homemade dinner. Good Saturday.

Nolan’s 14. An insane course over 60 hours through Colorado that summits fourteen 14,000-foot peaks. Since it started as an unofficial race in 1999 only 7 people have finished.

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. […]

Table Mountain

Great hike today with Daniel. Killer incline in the hike up but handily we came down a more gradual route.

Topped it off with a delicious milkshake after.

The three peaks


Spent the day hiking the three peaks in Spokane. Although, we didn’t quite reach the third since we were short on time. Phenomenal day.


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.
