Tropical Holidays

We had a white (sand) christmas in Florida this year :)

Rest Day(s)

Image
Still working through knee-injury recovery (2 weeks down, 4-6 to go) so my weekend was full of leg raises and gentle stretching. Here's a few picture of the sweet tape I get to rock this week under my brace though.

Seattle Skies

Image
I don't care what people say about Seattle weather, sunsets on the water are so beautiful here.

Christmas Tree

This weekend was our 3rd annual backcountryChristmas treeadventure. Thanks to my knee injury our hike in was notably shortened, so we went all out with a big fire and dutch oven beef stew for dinner. Yum!

Yodelin Woods

Image
Lots of trees and snow near the base of Yodelin. Excellent to get out and get some fresh air!

Pow Overload

Image
Hit up Mt. Baker resort this weekend to take advantage of the massive amounts of fresh snow! Definitely felt like my downhill skills improved (after mostly hiking uphill in the backcountry) but one faceplant too many in the cascade concrete landed me with a torn MCL and 6-8 weeks of no activity. GASP.

Table Mountain Tour

Image
A bit crowded today in the Baker backcountry since the weather was AMAZEBALLS. Snow conditions weren't amazing, and we skinned through crunchy-packed crust, or avalanche debris fields for most of the tour around the back side of Table Mountain. Hit a few sections of powder as we came back the same way we skinned up, and just being out in the sunshine for a day was fantastic.

It's Winter!

Image
Ski season has begun!! Our first day of the season this year was SOOO much better than last year. Conditions weren't amazing, but there was enough snow to skin from the Paradise parking lot up to Panorama point, and the patchy visibility did have a few moments of blue sky/sunshine.

Portsmouth, NH

Image
Headed out to Portsmouth, NH today, with a little stop in Salem, MA on the way. Lots of harbor-town cuteness and historical houses (including the House of the Seven Gables, which we looked at from a distance and didn't pay the $15 a person to actually tour through).
