Hike From Saturday With Pics!

22 April 2015 - 01:23 AM

Hello! Haven't been on in a while, been super busy lately. Saturday we had great weather so I went hiking with a friend. We hiked a section of the Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia River gorge. It is one of my favorite trails to hike. We hiked a total of about 13 miles. See below for a few pics. Will try to upload a short video as well later. Here is a link to a hiking website with some good pics and more info. http://nwhiker.com/CGNSAHike37.html

First Aid Kit Supplies?

18 February 2015 - 01:02 AM

I'm cleaning out and restocking my first aid kits for the barn and trailer. What are your must haves and things to stay away from? What all do you keep in yours? Also what items are a must have in your saddle bags? I have finally found a trail map that is sturdy enough I haven't ruined it yet.

Snowshoe Pics.

Hello! Hope everyone is having a great new year so far. On new years day, my friends and i went snowshoeing on the mountain, than drove up to Timberline Lodge for lunch and hot cocoa by the fire. Timberline is a historic lodge that was built in the late 1930's on the south side of Mt Hood, and was dedicated by the then president Franklin D Rosevelt. We snowshoed at Trillium Lake on the south side of Mt Hood. It was a clear day and although cold, was a perfect day for it. We did a little over 4 miles. Well onto the pic's, enjoy! 

This is a very frozen Trillium Lake, looking towards the south side of Mt Hood. Right about in the middle of the mountain and just above the tree line you can see the lodge and a few ski runs.

Looking south from the lodge. This is Mt jeffersen, and you can just barely see the Three Sisters mountains sticking up to the left.

Lets See Those Christmas Trees!

18 December 2014 - 01:57 AM

Finally got my tree up and decorated, been super busy so its taken a bit to get it done. I usually go with a noble but got a douglas fir this year. Haven't had one of them in a long time. Growing up my grandpa had a Christmas tree farm next door and I grew up helping him with it. Have always loved the smell of a fresh tree in the house.

Here is mine!

Joe Graham Horse Camp Sept 3 - 6, 2014. Pics!

18 September 2014 - 09:44 PM

My friend and I camped with our horses a couple weeks ago at Joe Graham. The campground is very nice with large campsites, nice sizable corrals for each horse, bathrooms and water. This was the first time I had been to this campground. We rode a total of 37.5 miles over the 4 days we were there. The trails were all really nice as well. We rode a section of the PCT and explored several other trails as well. We rode all the way around Timothy Lake on one day and got to check out Little Crater Lake. Little Crater lake was so cool! It was crystal clear, teal blue and you could see all the way to the bottom. We met quite a few hikers and bikers on the trails that were really nice, some had never seen a horse before. One guy thought my horses splint boots were argyle socks. We had a lot of fun and the horses were awsome! We plan on going back there again next summer to camp. Now onto the pics! Enjoy!
