A Quiet Thanksgiving Hike to Franklin Falls

A Quiet Thanksgiving Hike to Franklin Falls

Happy Thanksgiving (weekend) everyone! As is our new holiday tradition, we went outside to celebrate much that we are thankful for: our health, the great outdoors, and each other. Unfortunately we couldn’t have our families with us! It’s been such a hectic year, traveling around 7 different states, starting new jobs, planning a wedding, and just generally trying to have it all. Almost every moment of the year has been filled with some amount of crazy creative energy, so for this Thanksgiving, we took a quieter route for our celebration. On Wednesday, we worked from home and cooked our feast for two. We hustled around our tiny kitchen in an (almost) choreographed fashion to get everything on the table at the right time. We ate, then we rested.

Working with Conservation Northwest at Gold Creek Pond

Working with Conservation Northwest at Gold Creek Pond

After spending all summer hiking and camping, we’ve been wanting to give back to nature and the outdoors. I discovered Conservation Northwest through Facebook, and happened to see a planting party scheduled for a few weeks from then. Perfect! I thought, and RSVP’d. And it turned out, it was perfect!

Summer Special: Floating down the Snoqualmie

Summer Special: Floating down the Snoqualmie

Is there anything more American than floating down a river with your friends, a bucket of fried chicken, and coolers full of your favorite beverages? We didn’t think so either, so one Sunday, we loaded up our cars with tubes, life jackets, ice, drinks, and food, and headed out to the Snoqualmie River to bask in the glorious Pacific Northwest summer.

A tubing we shall go

A tubing we shall go

This weekends adventure took us out to The Summit at Snoqualmie for a day of tubing down a big hill covered in snow. Snoqualmie Pass takes I-90 through the Cascade Range and is one of the three main passes to get on the other side of the mountains in Washington. It is one of the closest ski areas to Seattle, being about 45 minutes outside of the city.
