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”

Cycle Oregon Joyride 25Jun2022

Summer has officially come to Oregon! The Joyride, an all-women ride, is a ride I have done a couple of other times, and it’s one of my favorites. Cycle Oregon really knows how to put an event together! Between the venue, the route, the food, and the entertainment after, it’s such a wonderful thing toContinue reading “Cycle Oregon Joyride 25Jun2022”

Dorena Dam Rail Trail 13Jun2022

Christine and I put on our helmets once again to hit the path. This time, we headed down to Cottage Grove, where they have a great path. I believe this used to be a train track and was converted to a bike path (rails to trails)? I want to look at this more, because IContinue reading “Dorena Dam Rail Trail 13Jun2022”

Lunch Prep: Pizza Zuke Boats

Trying to get back on the diet wagon, I picked out a couple of fun recipes. I actually made some egg, green chili, and cheese burritos with almond flour tortillas, but didn’t take pictures. They were very tasty, but not particularly pretty. And I forgot. But ANYWAY. I did take pictures of the pizza zucchiniContinue reading “Lunch Prep: Pizza Zuke Boats”

Old McKenzie Pass Hwy 242 West Side (oof!) 01June2022

Christine and I are back on Hwy 242, but coming up the west side this time. The west side is steeper and has many narrow hairpin corners. It’s quite the trek! The road is still closed to motorized vehicles, so we hopped on our bikes to enjoy the safety and beauty that is this highway.Continue reading “Old McKenzie Pass Hwy 242 West Side (oof!) 01June2022”

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”

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”
