I love to get out and explore the more wild areas surrounding wherever I live, but I sometimes overlook the good stuff that's really close...

Did a short hike yesterday up at Mt. Laguna. It was only about three miles in total, but the little man walked all but probably a half-mile of that all on his own two feet. This is in part because he decided that he really doesn't like being carried in the backpack carrier...

Yesterday I had an epic run. I missed last week's 8.5 mile after work run, so it was good to get out on a sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest and run through some trees..

After quite a few failed attempts, we finally found a great road to ride our bikes out towing hauling our 15 month-old in his own private chariot...

With the new "Wild" movie coming out (for better or worse), I took a look back at our Pacific Crest Trail adventure.

We moved last week, so the days of my nice, easy walks to and from work are now over. It's a bummer, but maybe there's a bright side.

Another failed attempt at riding some backroads with a child in tow.

Zoie, our orange and somewhat spunky cat looked at me with disdain as I slowly rolled over from a deep sleep to turn off my alarm clock...

We got off to a bit of a slow start today, so we only did a six mile bike ride, but it was nearly perfect for those six miles! It was a lightly travelled back-road on Mt. Laguna with a good surface, and it had some good climbing involved...
We started walking north from the Mexican Border. Six months and over 2600 miles later, we emerged several miles into Canada. Along the way, we walked through deserts, dense forests, and spectacular mountains.
Missing the scenery and freedom experienced on the PCT, we set off again to walk. This time, we spent a month hiking through Colorado from Denver to Durango. The scenery was great and the weather was wild!
Early in 2011, we had the privelage of spending three months in Japan. We sampled much of the country, spending time in Nagoya, Tokyo, Osaka, Hakata, and Kagoshima.
