A-OK Autumn

It’s December right before the big holidays, and the weather is getting rainy and cold out here in the Pacific Northwest. Time again to look over what I’ve done over the past season, which was autumn. Thanks to the never-ending pandemic, I don’t think I did very much. Just some end of season hiking and crabbing, and visiting some local places and back to Vancouver. Here’s what I’ve been up to for the last three months.

Autumn Activity Recap

It’s the end of November after Thanksgiving in the US, which means autumn is over and winter is taking its grip. Also means it’s time for me the post about what I’ve been up to in the last 3 or so months. We are still in the middle of the COVID pandemic which hasn’t gotten any better in the US, so most of my activities have been outdoors and away from the crowds. Here are the highlights:

Lake Valhallla from Mount McCausland
Absolutely gorgeous view of Lake Valhalla and Lichtenberg Mountain from Mount McCausland.

Summer Back Home, and Oregon-Washington Trip

In the first time in three years I was able to go back home during the summer, and of course I was very happy about being to head home during the nice, sunny summer months. This year there was an important conference in Vancouver, and my boss was nice enough to let me stay with my family for a little longer. Vancouver was beautiful as expected during the summer, and my parents and I also took a trip down south to Portland Oregon and to Mount Saint Helens and Mount Rainier in southern Washington state. I had a great time of course, and here are the highlights.
