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.

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.…

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.
