Snow Lake Hike Photos

The Snow Lake Hike is one of the most popular hikes to do in the Seattle area.  My son and I went on Wednesday morning, and by the time we left the lake to head back down (2:30ish), there were tons of people coming to the lake.  It’s about 7 miles round trip, rocky, but moderately easy with the elevation…

Be Led by Joy

Life is short, make it count.  Be led by what brings you joy. Spending a little time in nature is a must for me every week.  I don’t even know how many times I have parked at this mini parking lot close to my house (to take a walk through one of my dream neighborhoods) and…

Denny Creek Trail Photos

We spent yesterday (National Get Outdoors Day) up at the Denny Creek Trail. It’s a great hike for all ages. Here’s some photos of our adventure… Did you get a chance to get outside yesterday? No worries, you still have today! 🙂

The Amateur Outdoorsman Interview

I want to let you know about the interview I did over at The Amateur Outdoorsman about training for hiking and backpacking.  I share full body and core-specific exercises for backpacking along flexibility exercises for the trail.

Talus Rock Trail at Tiger Mountain

I was doing a TrailFit Hike with a client at Tiger Mountain and we stumbled upon the Talus Rock Trail (from the Tiger #3 Trail) – what a super cool surprise! I try to only take a couple shots when I’m with a client, but I just couldn’t help myself.  Sorry, Corky!!   The trailhead…

Beach Life

We had a quick trip to Cannon Beach this past weekend.  It was sunny, but pretty windy and smelly from the jellyfish-like Velella Velella that have washed up on the shores (in above photo).  We still managed to have fun and spend some quality time with the family.  Hope you had a great weekend too!

Family Time Photos: Mountain Biking Bellingham 

If you are looking for some family time adventure, you can go to Bellingham (Galbraith Mountain) and mountain bike the Bunny Trails, Dog Patch, and Lost Giants Trails. Those trails are a little more beginner/family friendly. It is sad that they clear-cut all those trees, but at least they were nice enough to keep the…

Spring Break!

This shot above was from our family bike ride this week from the Snoqualmie Valley Trail to Rattlesnake Lake (my husband is pointing to the people up on Rattlesnake Ledge ). I have more shots from this ride on my Instagram feed. Anyway, we are heading up to Vancouver Island for Spring Break – I can’t believe…

Just for Kids: Bus Trail at Tiger Mountain

Next week is spring break!  If you are planning a stay-cation, then take the kiddos to the Bus Trail at Tiger Mountain off I-90 at exit 20.  It’s flat the entire time and you can loop around to the lake trail  to head back and it’s only about 1.5 miles roundtrip.  You could even take…
