Bike the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park | Stuck in North Idaho

Biking Going to the Sun Road | Glacier National Park

This summer has been spent on two wheels, a change of pace in comparison to past summers spent hiking and car camping. Earlier this summer, Kyle and a couple friends convinced me to bite the bullet and buy my first road bike. To make sure I actually used said bike, I signed up for the Coeur d’Alene Bike Co.’s Coeur d’Fondo training group. Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday this summer, we’ve been meeting at the shop to go on group…

Kyle's doin' 29 right

Cheers to Kyle’s 29th

So far, Kyle’s 29th year is off to a amazing start and I hope the momentum continues.

Not bad, eh? For Kyle’s birthday this year, I wanted to do something special because 29 can sometimes be one of those “Meh” birthdays for people.…

48 Hours in Lake Chelan

I like wine. No, what I should have said is I love wine (as evidenced by my bio in the right-hand column, my angst of not having it during the Whole 30, by how we spend our time on road trips, and my favorite part of the Festival at Sandpoint). Those of us native to the Northwest understand the travel itch that comes along every February/March. When we're just over the dreary winter days and ready for a little exploring…

Northwest Instagram Inspiration

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week and spent little (or no) time waiting in shopping lines and traffic. Life has slowed down quite a bit in the Nagel household. It's now completely dark before and after work, so I've been taking very few pictures, and Kyle had a case of bronchitis so we've been laying low for about a week. Yep, it's officially that time of the year when we hibernate during the week and…
