Summer blues


Here are some photos from over the summer....starting with Ediza getting blue hair extensions at the Mammoth Reggae Festival.


Returning to the blue waters of the Monterey Bay Aquarium.


 Gus celebrating his birthday with some blue icing. 


And blue skies at Lake Ediza on our 11th annual backpacking trip to Ediza's namesake. Each year is a new adventure and this year the footbridge just before the lake washed out so we had to cross through the water. Can't wait to get back there next year.

Travel stories

I can’t believe this is my first post since the beginning of the year!

I recently complied a list of previous travel stories to help me keep track of places I’ve written about.

Other stories in the Sierra include:





Here's a few more just about Yosemite:




As well as nearby Calaveras County:

Happy New Year

Hope 2017 is off to a great start. Here’s some photos from our holiday season:

Ediza and Gus wearing matching pajamas on Christmas Eve
During the week of Thanksgiving, we returned to the East Coast and covered a lot of ground.

Outside of the Dobbin House Tavern, where you can dine by candlelight in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Caught a ride with this whale on the beach at Ocean City, Maryland
We explored Baltimore’s Inner Harbor via water taxi for my birthday. Following lunch, we took a boat over to an outdoor ice rink and later rode back across to a historic tavern in Fells Point. Highly recommend checking out the city this way.
