Passing my RN board examinations. Snowshoeing. Getting-back-out-there.
|bluebird doesn't get much better than this|
An incredible ski-vacation with dear friends. Losing one of my best trail friends.
|Rocky, sun-snoozing on the trail|
Few trail miles. Busy with work. It's still winter, hunting leprechauns in the Gorge.
|I <3 the Gorge when it looks like this|
APRIL & MAY
(I may have been a little grumpy these months...no trail time...a new job, transition, and night shift begins....)
Coastal adventures. My circadian rhythm is sooooo screwed...
|Netarts Bay, one of my favorite places on the Oregon Coast|
A wonderful visit from family. My circadian rhythm HATES me. Kayaking and overall being grumpy- discovering I am NOT a night person.
|a family member's dream to pinch Goonies Rock|
Coming to peace with the fact that night shift means you will never-feel-normal. "Discovering" jump shots. My only two backpacking trips of the year, both hilarious, both with good friends.
|Yahooo! on McNeil Point|
Checking Hurricane Ridge off the bucket list...sixteen years with my best friend and soulmate. <3 <3 <3
|the clouds played for us on our anniversary (ONP, Washington)|
Playing in the Mount Margaret backcountry. No goats, no elk. Stalking larch trees. One of the most glorious falls I can remember. Getting dayshift. SCORE.
|me, loving the Mount Margaret backcountry, serenaded by Hood & Helens|
Returning to the Gorge, my winter playground. Welcoming a new, flat-faced addition to the house.
Going east to escape the rains. No snow. Georgia on my mind. Big fish.
|Eastside. No rain. Mount Hood from Hood River Mountain.|
