Goat Lake: Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest


While visiting my brother in Seattle, we decided to squeeze in a hike while driving back from an overnight trip to Vancouver. After reading a few blogs and hiking websites, I came across Goat Lake in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest area.

Iceland: August 2015 Part Two

Road Trip!

We hiked back to the Bus Hostel Sunday morning to pick our rental car from Route 1 rental. Worked out to be about $70 USD a day for a Toyota Yaris. Most of the rental cars are manual so if you can't drive stick, you have to hunt for one. Thankfully Josh could drive one.

Iceland: August 2015 Part One


Wow Airlines had a pretty good sale on flights to  Iceland back in January and I recently read about the Laugavegurinn trail in Backpacker and decided that would make a pretty awesome trip. I bought my ticket and started asking friends to see who wanted to go with me.

Old Rag Sunrise hike

After an unexpected change of plans to do the White Oak Canyon to Stony Man Mt to Old Rag loop, I decided to do a sunrise hike of Old Rag after a wonderful day of drinking IPAs.
I also wanted to do a shake down hike before I heading to Iceland to backpack the Laugavegurinn trail and test out some of the Peak Design camera equipment that conveniently came in right before I left.

**I originally did this review on BPL on 3/14**

I recently purchased the 20* Marcy quilt from Mid-Atlantic Mountain Works. Mid Atlantic Mountain Works is a new cottage vendor based out of DC and run by a guy named Jared.
