Escape to the Sawtooths and Redfish Lake

After record-breaking heat, a trip to Redfish Lake was just what we needed. This post is brought to you in partnership with Merrick Pet Care. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It's amazing how some things work out when you don't make any plans. As a self-described type-A, I like plans. Knowing where I'm going to be and when, for how long, etc., is important. Without these plans I can turn into a complete basket case, but often that's where…

Road Trip: Cannon Beach, Part 2, Ecola State Park

This is the second part of our trip to Cannon Beach in April. You can read part 1 here. View Kyle's video of our trip here.

We made the tough decision to leave Juneau at home this trip. Because neither of us had ever been…

I've passed through this tiny town many, many times over the years and never once made it a stopping point or final destination. It's best known as a…

Road Trip: Leavenworth, Part 3

Shop and sight see... check. Party at Oktoberfest... check. Explore the beautiful mountains and river... here we go! Due to the craziness of the Leavenworth Marathon, we were unable to hike Icicle River like we initially planned, but thanks to a knowledgeable employee at Leavenworth Mountain Sports, we decided to hike Penstock Trail, just a couple miles west of town.  I am SO glad we did! We actually hiked the trail twice. That's how beautiful it was. On Saturday morning, Kyle…
