Horse Rock Ridge 03Jul2022

Christine and I wanted to hike Horse Rock Ridge, for the incredible views. So, the day before Independence Day, we set off in the morning… It has been a wet summer so far in Oregon, and today was a foggy one up in the mountains. We got to the trailhead to be greeted by fogContinue reading “Horse Rock Ridge 03Jul2022”

Drift Creek Falls Trail #1378 20May2022

A few work friends wanted to go hiking with me, and I got to pick the venue. I decided on a trail that’s not too long or difficult, but with good bang for the buck. This is one I’ve wanted to do for a little while. On the day of the hike, it ended upContinue reading “Drift Creek Falls Trail #1378 20May2022”

Spencer In the Rain 18May2022

It has been raining in Western Oregon. Surprising, I know. Seriously, there’s usually a bit of sun in May, mixed with the rain. This year, however, has had a wet start. I’ve gone to the gym, listlessly trudging away on the elliptical machine. I’ve even gone as far as to use the stand-up tanning boothsContinue reading “Spencer In the Rain 18May2022”

Blanton Ridge 23Apr2022

I struggled to get out and hike this week. I had time… but why didn’t I want to hit the trails?? Well, my friends, sometimes the rain sucks. I don’t mind hiking in the rain sometimes (I do have raingear and whatnot), but it’s April and I am TIRED of the rain! I’m so readyContinue reading “Blanton Ridge 23Apr2022”

Pisgah Flats & Lunch Prep 10Apr2022

The weather here has been more of what I’d expect from March: unpredictable. We’ve had a lot of rain (normal), but the temperature has dropped and we’ve recently had some snow, hail, sleet, and whatever else there is to be had. Once in a while, the sun breaks out and one can see blue skies!Continue reading “Pisgah Flats & Lunch Prep 10Apr2022”

Spencer Butte from Fox Hollow Rd 07Apr2022

I’m supposed to go biking/hiking with my friend Christine this weekend, but there was no way I was going to miss out on today’s weather. I mean, LOOK: So, I went local, and chose Spencer Butte, one of my favorites. This time, I decided to go from Fox Hollow Rd. The parking area was smallContinue reading “Spencer Butte from Fox Hollow Rd 07Apr2022”

Mt Pisgah 29Mar2022 (Trails 1 -> 6 -> 36)

I haven’t been to Mt. Pisgah in years! It’s a very popular place to hike, with many trails to vary your hike from time to time. It’s a pay-to-park, but you can get a yearly pass if you think you’ll be there a lot. The park doesn’t open until 10 am, and when I gotContinue reading “Mt Pisgah 29Mar2022 (Trails 1 -> 6 -> 36)”
