Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure Day 3: Living My Best Life on Snæfellsnes

December 29th - Day 3... The wind was whipping when I awoke, still way before anyone else in the guesthouse (still hadn't figured out to just sleep in).  The appeal of Iceland is it's natural beauty, which is hard to see when it's COMPLETELY DARK, so I knew I didn't want to get too early… Continue reading Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure Day 3: Living My Best Life on Snæfellsnes

Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure Day 2: Silfra Snorkeling, Wintry Waterfalls, and Snowy Streets of Borgarnes

December 28th - Day 2... because I was still very new to this whole "darkness until midday" concept that is winter in Iceland, my alarm went off at a bright and cheery 6:30am.  I'm use to hotels in the U.S., which are bustling at such an hour, but it was dead quiet at Efstidalur.  I… Continue reading Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure Day 2: Silfra Snorkeling, Wintry Waterfalls, and Snowy Streets of Borgarnes

Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure Day 1: Reykjanes & Golden Circle

December 26th - The day was here.  Suitcases had been packed and repacked with care, in hopes that Iceland would soon be near... The 9:30am departure from Laramie was smooth sailing under sunny Wyoming skies (and then polluted Colorado skies) and a blanket of snow.  Apart from crushing a fairly new pair of sunglasses with… Continue reading Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure Day 1: Reykjanes & Golden Circle

On the Waterfall Hunt in New Hampshire’s White Mountains

I'm endlessly chasing waterfalls, so naturally when Kubo and I arrived in New Hampshire this past September, we were giddy to learn there were many waterfalls for us to try to catch! We were based in Conway, which is in the White Mountains.  Luckily there is no lack of information on the waterfalls in the… Continue reading On the Waterfall Hunt in New Hampshire’s White Mountains

48 Hours of Québec

It was pretty simple:  there's no way we could go to New Hampshire and Vermont and NOT go into Canada.  Neither Kubo nor I have been anywhere in Canada, and this was the perfect chance to do it relatively easy.  Like most of our plans, a simple idea of just visiting for a few hours… Continue reading 48 Hours of Québec

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
