Snowshoeing With Abby

Amy and Abby took off on a snowshoe trek near Hoodoo, Oregon while Sky participated in the telefest at the nearby resort. The next day, the team skinned up Potato Hill and skied the Hash Potato trail—it was more like mashed potatoes though! Great fun skiing through perfectly spaced burn scared hillside—very spooky.

Redwood Park

We have a wonderful walking park near out home in Oakland. Redwood Park is just a short drive away, but once there it feels like you could be miles away from the urban Bay Area.

One of our favorite walks, drops a spur ridge into a deep canyon filled with Redwood trees. From there you climb back out of the top of the canyon

Emigrant Wilderness

On Labor Day weekend, we decided to forgo Lyndsie & Jeff’s invite to go to wine country, and instead headed 3.5 hours away to Emigrant Wilderness, just North of Yosemite. If you’ve been following our posts, by now you’ve learned that we rarely get to the trail on time. On night one, we stayed at Powell Lake. Day two we headed to our destination, Chewing Gum Lake. Well, so did everyone else. It was like a Clif Bar commercial gone wrong. Families had hired pack mules to bring in their camping equipment, so instead of nice, serene lakeside camping it was packed! We made the decision to find a different place to stay the night and, after looking at the map, decided to go to Granite Lake. Sky found a “shortcut” to get us there sooner. A few cliff rapels, carrying of the dog, swashbuckling and horse pastures later, we arrived. The hike, aside from our off-trail escapades, was really easy and beautiful. Amazing meadows, wildflowers and trees. A few pics from our latest adventure.

Minimoon

After our wedding we went on a short “minimoon” to decompress. It was a top notch glamping expedition at CostaNoa eco resort on the coast. Deciding to  truly embrace the area, we did all the touristy things: ate at some very bad restaurants (one even claimed to have won a James Beard award, which is a shocker…we have never felt more sick), ate at some overpriced restaurants, visited an awesome goat farm where Amy ate her weight in goat cheese samples, played with baby goats, got lost on backroads, visited some cool lighthouses and just enjoyed ourselves. Sky surfed and Amy was the ultimate sandbunny. Below are a few pics from the days right after our wedding.
