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

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

Throwback Thursday: Exploring the town burning from below – Centralia, PA

I originally wrote this blog in July 2013 after visiting Centralia, PA on my way to a mountain bike race in Allentown on my cycling blog.  I decided it needed to come out of the archives as it is a unique roadside attraction to visit if you're in the area!   A few months ago Matt… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Exploring the town burning from below – Centralia, PA

Hahn Woods & Lullwater Preserve – my bit of nature in Atlanta

My job takes me to Atlanta, Georgia, fairly regularly, which usually means I'm tucked away in some chilly, air-conditioned hotel conference center in the middle of cement and shopping malls.  When I'm especially lucky, however, I am in meetings at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and staying on Emory University campus at their hotel.… Continue reading Hahn Woods & Lullwater Preserve – my bit of nature in Atlanta

Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 4: Thermopolis and Kcymaerxthaere

"Do I really need my job, and do we really need to go home?" That was the theme of my morning as I struggled to wake up on the final morning of our Bighorn Mountains adventure.  Y'all, I really struggled with getting up on this morning!  Kubo jumped up, started preparing some coffee and sandwiches… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 4: Thermopolis and Kcymaerxthaere

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
