Fun in the Fall

Fall is coming to a close now, and it’s time to recap all the new and fun experiences of the past season. In addition to the small outings in this post, I went on a family trip through Yellowstone. I don’t know when the meteorological season ends exactly, but most of the fall foliage is gone and we are getting to the grey and dreary weather that is typical of the Pacific Northwest winter. Here are the highlights of what I’ve been up to in the past three months.

Mount Si
Hiked up to Mount Si. Not as tough as Mailbox, but still plenty strenuous. Saw some snowflakes falling while at the summit.

Shimmying Through Summer

It’s getting to near the end of August already, which means the summer is almost over. I’ve tried to take advantage of the nice weather we have in the Pacific Northwest and go explore the outdoors during the weekends. Here are some photo highlights of what I’ve been up to in the last 2 months.

Springing Through Spring

It’s been almost 3 months since I’ve posted here so it’s time again to share what I’ve been up to. The warmer and less rainy weather in Spring meant more opportunities to go hiking and enjoy the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. Here are some photo highlights of my adventures through spring of 2019.

Lake 22
Not sure where the other 21 lakes are, but Lake 22 in the Cascades is gorgeous, and still had a bit a snow when we visited.

Winter in the Puget Sound

I haven’t posted here since my big road trip to move across the country from Raleigh NC to the Seattle WA area, and that’s more than 3 months ago. During this time, winter has come and gone, and here are just some photo (and video) highlights of what I have been up to during my first winter in the Puget Sound region.
