Backpacking to Fault Lake

July was a crazy month starting out in Greece and then heading straight to the Clearwater for Megan and Dylan's wedding after coming home. Just one week later I rode from Seattle to Portland in one day for the STP with some friends. Then we finished off the month with a slew of BBQs (the way we ought to). But it was time for some peace and quite, and a little bro time. My brother, Kendrich, also had a busy…

Pulaski Tunnel Trail in Wallace, Idaho | Stuck in North Idaho

Take a Hike | Pulaski Tunnel Trail

A hike back to 1910Last week Kyle, Juneau and I set out to go hike outside of Wallace. As we drove over the pass heading east, the already dark, smoky sky continued to become more dense, filling our car with the smell of smoke.

Snowshoe | Fernan Saddle via Stuck in North Idaho

Snowshoeing | Fernan Saddle

Snowshoeing is probably my new favorite winter activity.

One of the closest trail networks to us is up at the Fernan Saddle, about a 15-30 (depending on road and weather conditions) minute drive from downtown…

Motorcycle trip to Jerry Johnson Hot Springs | Stuck in North Idaho

Road Trip | Jerry Johnson Hot Springs

Way back in May we took a weekend trip southeast and landed at Jerry Johnson Hot Springs. If memory serves me right (be warned, it usually doesn't), this was a last-minute, let's-get- out-of-town trip that ended up being incredibly fun. We had heard about the hot springs from some friends last summer and were anxious to check them out. There are several hot springs scattered along the Idaho/Montana border and we hope to visit them all. Jerry Johnson Hot Springs…

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…
