Green Bluff Growers is Spokane, WA via Stuck in North Idaho

A visit to Green Bluff

This morning as I sipped my coffee, I watched out the window as the fog and clouds dissipated from the city streets and the morning sun lit the gold leaves still clinging to the trees outside. Fall is here. Earlier this month the days became noticeably shorter and the nights cooler; but the days stayed warm and sunny. Not our typical October. This week though, there’s been a shift and now there’s a bite in the air and early morning…

Hike the Cougar Bay Preserve near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho | via Stuck in North Idaho

Take a Hike | Cougar Bay Preserve

Located just a few minutes south of downtown Coeur d'Alene is a little chunk of land I've been wanting to explore for some time, the Cougar Bay Preserve.

Without these plans I can turn into a complete basket case, but often that's where…

Take an awesome trip to Cannon Beach, OR

But with travel and camping season in full swing, I feel like it's still relevant. (Psst... You can check out Kyle's video from the trip here.) We made the tough decision to leave Juneau at home this trip. Because neither of us had ever been…

A Healthy Backcountry Buddy

What you feed your dog is more important than you think This post is brought to you in partnership with Merrick Pet Care. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Three years ago, when we first started the “let’s get a dog” conversation, I did a lot of research on some of my favorite breeds and really compared their traits with our lifestyle. Having grown up with a Newfoundland, I knew I wanted a big dog so that really narrowed down…
