During the last week of February, 2015, my Wordpress-based blog was hacked.  The hackers were pretty crafty, and we're doing what we can to retrieve as much of the content as possible.  In the interim, thanks for your patience and know that we're working on it.  I'll be uploading new and old posts and reviews over the next few weeks to this new site on Squarespace.

Spent the weekend in the Lake Chelan area.  For those of you who have the chance to visit, and like to run trails, I highly recommend running up and down Chelan Butte - particularly when the flowers are out.  Great little run with some impressive views of the North Cascades, the Southern end of Lake Chelan, and the town below.

In case you missed it, two guys just completed the first ever winter thru-hike of the PCT.  Click the image for the story.

 

 

 

 

Curious where the most and least traveled trails are around you?  Strava just released a new interactive heat map. Check it out HERE.  Below is a heat map screenshot of the Issaquah ('Issy') Alps, which is where I train during the week.
