Throwback Thursday: Understanding in a plane crash on Medicine Bow Peak

I originally published this post June 2012 on my cycling blog.  Decided to dig it out of the archives to share again with very minor edits!  Because 7 years have passed, there could be some big changes to the crash site thanks to snow, weather, time, and humans.     For some background... Flight 409 crashed… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Understanding in a plane crash on Medicine Bow Peak

Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 3: Porcupine Falls and Bighorn Medicine Wheel

Nothing like fresh mountain air to lure one out of bed on a Saturday morning in the Bighorns!  Kubo and I cooked up some breakfast and coffee, and prepared for the day's adventures.  The previous night we watched headlights switchbacking up the mountain by our campsite, so we figured we needed to check out the… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 3: Porcupine Falls and Bighorn Medicine Wheel

Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 2: Shell Falls and Paradise Falls

It rained a lot during the night, but there was a bit of sunshine when we woke up in the morning.  But Kubo and I both had the feeling it wouldn't last, so part way through preparing breakfast we decided to take a break and tear down the tent while it wasn't totally wet.  As… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 2: Shell Falls and Paradise Falls

Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 1: Crazy Woman Canyon and West Tensleep Falls

A four day weekend that included me taking a rare single day off of work can only mean one thing... adventure time!!  I didn't want to stick around home while using a precious PTO day, so Kubo and I packed up Fozzy (my beloved Subaru Forester) and hit the road to northern Wyoming and the… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 1: Crazy Woman Canyon and West Tensleep Falls

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 17: Reynisfjara, a taste of Fimmvörðuháls, and all the waterfalls!

September 17, 2018 With all the rain the night before, I was scared to open my eyes in the morning in Vík, as I didn't want rain on our final day in the wilds of Iceland.  Once I pried them open, I realized I didn't hear rain, and that there was blue sky! Today had… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 17: Reynisfjara, a taste of Fimmvörðuháls, and all the waterfalls!

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 16: Hiking in Skaftafell, Fjaðrárgljúfur, and Vík

September 16, 2018 Somehow I appeased the elves, and we awoke to drier weather after dealing with rain most of the previous day.  Woohoo, we could finally see the scenery around us! We ate and packed up and headed out of Svínafell with Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park as our destination for the morning to… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 16: Hiking in Skaftafell, Fjaðrárgljúfur, and Vík

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 14: The Incredible Eastfjords

Iceland Day 14 - September 14, 2018 1°C (about 34°F) weather and freshly fallen snow on the mountains greeted us in the morning in Seydisfjörður.  Our coldest night in Iceland, and a good reminder that winter is rapidly on its way when you're at 65°N. After breakfast and piling on the clothes, we headed back up… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 14: The Incredible Eastfjords
