The Pacific Northwest

 

A few weeks ago Elizabeth and I traveled to Seattle and Portland for a few days. With no set plans other than see friends and explore the cities, we had a great time. This was my first time to both Washington and Oregon and neither disappointed. So much amazing scenery, so easy to access. The Columbia River Gorge is still on mind, with so many waterfalls just a short drive and short hike from Portland. I will definitely be back!

 

Wyoming 2015

 

What has become the annual trip to Wyoming didn’t disappoint. No new snow but plenty good times to be had! Biggest news is the Wyoming Wet Whistle SCD (Shot/Chug/Dunk) was a huge success. Last year I was the sole participant but convinced five others to join me this year…they loved it. Bigger and badder in 2016 for sure.

 

 

 

 

 

Appalachian Trail

With the week off between Christmas and New Years I have had a fair amount of free time. I have taken a few opportunities to learn my new camera setup, the Sony A7ii. One of the biggest factors that drove me the camera was the size and weight. I found most of the time I didn’t want to carry my canon it was because of the size. My goal is to have the camera with me more, and thus take more pictures. With rather warm weather for December, Josh and I decided to lace up the boots and go for an overnight trip. We managed to stay warm enough and start the year off on the right foot. Coffee always tastes better after a night in the woods.
