McKenzie Pass (Hwy 242) from Sisters 22May2022

Oh, Christine. My good friend Christine decided to challenge herself. She, like myself, has not had the chance to do too many bike rides yet this year, and we’re both planning on doing some biking events soon. So, she decided it’s time for a challenge to help her get ready for some hills. She choseContinue reading “McKenzie Pass (Hwy 242) from Sisters 22May2022”

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”

Clearwater Ride 04May2022

I’ve been waiting. Waiting for another day like today. We had an okay day yesterday – it didn’t get cold, but it also didn’t get warm. It didn’t rain, but there wasn’t much sun. NOT TODAY, MY FRIENDS. With a day like this, I decided to go on another bike ride. This one would beContinue reading “Clearwater Ride 04May2022”

Biking Around Coburg 24Apr2022

I got invited to ride bikes with my friend Christina this weekend, and we picked an amazing day for it! It started out in the 50s, I think, but warmed up as we rode. We were pretty comfortable the entire time – I think it was in the mid-60s by the time we finished. HerContinue reading “Biking Around Coburg 24Apr2022”

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”
