Visiting Crater Lake

After visiting California's Coastal Redwoods, we traveled up to Oregon's Crater Lake and loved it. What a great, amazing place to visit. Stunningly beautiful and a great time in the campground. I put a few shots on Flickr mingled with the Coastal Redwoods but the full gallery is here. James, Autumn, and I hiked down to the lake -- where James and I jumped in. It was cold.

Visiting the Coastal Redwoods

Back when Michelle was all preggers in 2015, we took a light hiking and camping trip to the coastal redwoods in California and Oregon's stunning Crater Lake. What a trip! These are the highlights from California. Some on Flickr and the full gallery here.

Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake Lodge Photos

In one of the best events I have been asked to participate in, I joined a group of people for a weekend at Flathead Lake Lodge in Montana to discuss campaign-finance reform research and efforts. While there, many of us took a short hike on a trail at Glacier National Park. At the dude ranch, they had an adorable foal. Full photo gallery here and some highlights on Flickr.

New England Travel, 2013

When I had a bunch of work events scheduled fairly close to each other in New England and New York City in 2013, Michelle and I decided to take some time in between for some traveling and hiking and then we dropped in on Autumn and James. Full gallery here and a few highlights on Flickr.

Hiking the Porcupine Mountains

In summer of 2013, Michelle and I met James and Autumn in the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan's Upper Peninsula - a state park. We did some backpacking and had a very fun time despite having to ford a raging... creek... and having to deal with a fair amount of rain on the middle day of our 2 night stay.

All the photos are available in this gallery and many of the highlights are available on Flickr.

After a work trip to San Antonio, Klinkers met me in Austin and we headed a bit west for some hiking and relaxing. We went to Enchanted Rock state park, did some hiking, found some great pit bbq, and had an all-around swell time. Full gallery here.

Hiking Isle Royale

Last year, Michelle and I squeezed a quick trip to Isle Royale National Park out of weekend - full gallery here. We took the ferry to the island, hiked to a camping pad by the lake, slept well, and hiked back to the dock the next morning. We got soaked on the first day - it was raining the whole morning on the ferry ride and our path was soaked. But it cleared up in the afternoon and the second day was beautiful.
