A few folks over at #steemitbloggers threw down a great challenge to the community: asking us to share our funniest experience or encounter in a hotel. With just a few hours on the clock, I decided to share this story, which is also one of my most embarrassing moments...okay, here goes.
A few months back I headed up into the Cascade Mountains with Cash and my buddy Brandon to hike Lake 22. The forecast predicted clouds and overcast skies, but we figured it would help quell the late summer heat and thought that maybe we’d even get a chance to jump in the water!
With high hopes we d
The most magical moment of summer 2018 - by far - was getting to visit a herd of horses on the plains in South Dakota. What can I say, I’m still a little girl at heart.
This summer we drove to South Dakota, on a road trip to Eagle Butte to see @ukuleletutorial’s goddaughter have her Lakota naming c
Yellowstone is one of the most infamous national parks in the US, and this summer we passed through for a beautiful evening on our way to South Dakota.
To be fair, we had planned to stay longer, but little did we know that a snow storm, hail, and an avalanche were in store! That’s also the reason w
These caves offer views of some of the oldest, most intricate limestone formations in the Northwest. Get your fill of stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and helictites all in a guided tour departing the visitor’s center every 20-30 minutes May-September.
On a roadtrip to South Dakota this summer, w
This past weekend saw stormy grey skies over Seattle. With such gloomy omens overhead, I almost didn’t want to get out of the house, but my friend Matt said “Yes, let’s” so off we went.
Lucky we did, because as we drove into the Cascade mountains the clouds broke, the sun came out, and we were gree
I grew up in Oregon, but never managed to find my way to Crater Lake National Park until this summer. The verdict? Just go!
Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States at 1,949 feet, filling a 2,148 foot deep volcanic crater (or caldera).
The lake was formed when super-volcano Mount Mazama
The Olympic Peninsula is my favorite place on earth. And nothing is quite as sweet as spending a beautiful day on a remote beach with my love.
This summer, @ukuleletutorials and I packed up the car and headed to Ruby Beach on the southwestern part of the Peninsula. We snagged a campspot at Bogachie
Over the past 4 months I’ve been in 5 states: exploring caves, volcanoes, mountains, prairies, and everything in between (or at least it feels like it).
I could say that I’ll be settling down for a while now, but I know that’s not true with the holidays fast approaching and new year travel plans un
When I moved to Seattle 3.5 years ago and first discovered the Washington Trails Association and their interactive map of all WA state trails, I stumbled upon the Lake Ozette Triangle/Capa Alava and immediately added it to my bucket list of “must do” PNW adventures.
Years later, I finally got to ta
It’s been 2 weeks since my last post! Time flies when summery temps come to the Pacific Northwest and I’m finally able to get outdoors regularly!
The last few weeks have been a blur, most notably this past 5-day weekend where I got to see family from out of town and head out to a camping bachelorett
