PCT Dreamin'


Did you know?

We're off on another adventure! 

It's been a helluva' couple years of great adventures.  While we love and adore this incredible place we call home, we keep continuing to mix it up.  Whether at home or afar, Adventures are the stuff of Living.  We aspire to keep on, keepin' On.  Living that is.  And so we're off again.

What's been on our mind the last 2 months?

That would be the Pacific Crest Trail.

Yes, THAT trail.

Who says you can't do the same thing twice?

Ohhhhhh, the adventures we will have!  The Places We'll Go!!

Keith and Leslie are going hiking.

This time last year:  a hitchhike with a bicycle on the Navajo Reservation.

I've been busy organizing, packing boxes of food, buying some gear.  We are so ready to hit the trail.  Keith's been working hard at the lodge all winter, eating too much good food and drink, being a Powder Pig and skiing up a storm. It's going to be a shock going from winter in the Canadian Rockies to spring heat in the desert.  I'm ready.  He's ready.  We're Ready.

For an Adventure!!


Keith's winter job:  CMH Cariboos  Backcountry Heli-ski bliss!!

Really?  He calls this work.


Home Sweet Home:  Me making turns in the Sunshine Village backcountry


We fly tomorrow.

To San Diego.

We'll visit friends, who will take us to the trail.

We'll put on our packs. 

And we'll start hiking.

In the desert.


Being an Ass in Utah

I LOVE THE DESERT!!

These Canadian cheeks are going to be red.

Or pink.

I'll get SWASS.

*Sweaty Ass*


Home:  Tunnel Mountain Trail

We'll forget about winter.

We're soooo done with it.

Although we love it.


Monument Valley on the bikes


We shall sweat our Arses off in the desert!!

On the very beautiful Pacific Crest Trail...

If you recall.

I hiked that little trail in Aug-Sept-October of 2012.

I LOVE OUR HOME!!!

I love Hiking.

I love my hubby.

I love to travel.

I love trails.

I love adventure!!


Our Pet Elk Mittens - our front lawn
I LOVE OUR ELK!!


Too bad we can't take Mittens.

Our Guard elk.

He's out with his Harem right now.

Life is Good.

Especially if you have a Harem of ladies.

Or are going hiking for 2 months in Southern California.


The Place Where Adventure Ideas Are Born:  our Kitchen
I LOVE COFFEE HERE!!


We will hike in beautiful places, on a beautiful trail, day after day after day!  Through desert and mountains and magical pine forests.  Mmmmm.

Before you know it, I'll be sitting here back in my kitchen dreaming of the next adventure.

But for now, there is the Pacific Crest Trail - for the next 2 whole months!

I can't wait for the adventure to begin.

Wish you were hiking farther north! We are doing Bridge of Gods to Snoqualmie to finish up WA. Sure wish I had two months off, but I have two weeks--so there you go.
