Trailshot Tuesday: Mount Fremont

Trailshot Tuesday: Mount Fremont

So, I did a terrible job at posting last year. This year, I’m determined to make that up. I found these photos from a hike Spenser & I went on while at a weekend hiking retreat at Camp Sheppard with the Washington Hikers & Climbers gang. The Fremont Lookout is an easy 5 mile hike out to spectacular vistas, and I can’t wait to revisit it.

2015 in Review

2015 in Review

2015 was a big year for us in a lot of ways. We didn’t start out the year with a ton of lofty goals beyond “get married” and “don’t ruin ourselves financially,” so I think we did pretty well in that aspect. 2 for 2 so far. I guess my other goal was to update the blog more regularly, and I only updated 10 times (11 if I actually publish this one in 2015…(haha! didn’t happen)), so that was a bust. It’s an easy goal to beat for 2016 though!

Snowshoeing in Paradise on New Year’s Eve

Snowshoeing in Paradise on New Year’s Eve

This New Year’s Eve, we spent the day in Paradise, literally. We threw our (REI rental) snowshoes in the car and headed to Mt. Rainier for the day. We got kind of a late start, because we worked out with our trainer that morning and then of course we were scrambling around trying to find our snow clothes… Where do gloves go during the summer? How do they do it? I would blame the cat, but I don’t have enough evidence to pin it on her, so I just suspect the gloves walk away on their own. Also, this is why I always put on my calendar two nights before an event “get stuff ready for [event].” I have yet to actually get up and do that thing at that time. But I digress. So naturally, we were on the road by 10am.
