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”

Deep Dish Pizza… in a Crockpot?!

Hooooooboy, are you in for a treat! Well, to be more precise, WE were in for a treat last night. My sweetheart and I were looking for recipes to make something in the crockpot this weekend. My go-to is kalua pork, but we wanted something different this time. I’ve heard you can make a decentContinue reading “Deep Dish Pizza… in a Crockpot?!”

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 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)”

Hardesty Trailhead to Goodman Creek Trail 21Mar2022

Today should have had a different title, but I’m getting ahead of myself. A friend texted me saying that her friend (I have met her a couple of times) wanted to go hiking with me. She hikes on her own but would like to have a buddy to go with. Sweet! We chatted and cameContinue reading “Hardesty Trailhead to Goodman Creek Trail 21Mar2022”
