Run to Stay Warm 2022

Today was a fun day outside. Every year there is a Run to Stay Warm race. You can do a 5k, 10k, or a half marathon. Proceeds go toward helping people pay their electricity bills, specifically people who are in financial hardship at risk of having their electricity shut off. I showed up early… waaaayContinue reading “Run to Stay Warm 2022”

La Pine, OR 13Aug2022

Some gal friends and I went to La Pine, Oregon for a nice little getaway. Christine and I came up with some hiking choices for all skill levels, and everyone brought a game or was willing to play. On the first day, we arrived in the afternoon, and Christine’s dog was dying to get outContinue reading “La Pine, OR 13Aug2022”

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”

To Clearwater Boat Ramp 15Jun2022

Working on my distance instead of hills, I decided to bike out to Springfield. It has been raining… STILL. It wasn’t raining on this day (yet), so it was a good day to ride. Crossing one of the bridges near the University of Oregon, I noticed how full the rivers are. This water is usuallyContinue reading “To Clearwater Boat Ramp 15Jun2022”

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”
