So we’ve missed a ton of time updating the blog and I’m going to have to dive right back in to the present to get restarted. I have some half-written blogs from the last 6 months that I will eventually get uploaded, but here’s the not-so-quick recap.
After the last post – arriving in Maine in July – we went to Iceland. It was amazing and will someday get its own full post. There are far too many amazing places and pictures to cover here.
On the way from Maine back to Oregon we did some mountain biking in Copper Harbor, Michigan.
After recuperating in Oregon for a while we spent a month in the Southwest. My parents were in New Zealand so we took care of Leif, their mini Aussie puppy. We went to Phoenix first; Sara volunteered at Ironman AZ so she can sign up for next year! We also did some biking.
We also spent a few days with a friend in Vegas.
Then we headed to Sedona for Thanksgiving.
From Sedona we headed to visit Sara’s cousin in Durango.
After our cousin visit we decided to seek out winter, first at Wolf Creek Pass and then Monarch Pass ski areas in Colorado. Leif absolutely loved the snow!
After a mere two days in the snow we decided we wanted a few more days in the desert so we headed to Moab. Unfortunately, winter had already arrived in Moab, too, so we just hiked and explored instead of biking.
After Moab we headed north to the San Rafael Swell to see the Little Grand Canyon.
Then we hit opening day at Sundance. Bob was nowhere to be seen, except for all the brochures!
Finally, we headed back to drop Leif off in Oregon.
Continuing the scenic route on the way back, we stopped at the Bruneau Sand Dunes south of Mountain Home, ID.
Okay, so that’s the update. We spent a few days snowboarding at Crystal Mountain, WA before Christmas. Then after New Year’s we spent a few days with friends at Schweitzer ski resort outside Sandpoint, ID where I played with my new toy – a Rylo 360° camera. Expect a bunch of clips in future posts!
So now we have left Oregon and hit the road for good. A big storm is hitting the Sierras next week so that’s where we are. More to come soon, I promise!
