3/22 to 3/25/2016 – Being that we live so close to the border, Grete and I had a major Canadian itch to scratch this last ski season. We wanted to get our feet wet with Canadian ski traversing and hoped to get to see some gigantic glaciers too! Thankfully, we had friends (Anthony and Becca) […]Read more "The Yoho Traverse"
2/1 to 3/13/16 – Again, I’ve gotten behind on the blog. The reason for this delay is that good friends, plentiful adventures and great weather have forced me outside and away from my computer… schucks! Well, here goes another little posting about a whole bunch of wonderful wanderings out in the woods from mid-season this […]Read more "Mid-Winter Goodness"
2/13 to 2/15/2016 – After a solid month of routine work, skiing, eating and sleeping Grete and I were needing something to change it up. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I booked Yurtski’s Lupine yurt in the southern Swan Range for the weekend. As plans evolved (in the last couple days before the trip) we ended […]Read more "Will You Be My Valentine at Yurtski?"
5/10-11 & 24-25/2015 – Well, I just realized that I lost track of time and photos (as often happens) and hadn’t posted these photos from a couple of wonderful trips up to the Sperry Glacier last spring… I got the awesome opportunity to volunteer up on Sperry Glacier in Glacier National Park for the USGS doing […]Read more "Sperry Glacier"

We were easily distracted from our climatic concerns by the thing we missed the most while adventuring: our beloved big white […]Read more "Winter So Far…"
11/05 to 11/23/2015 – “MUCHOS GRACIAS POR FAVOR…” I repeated over and over to the friendly local farmer who was wading thigh-deep across the Bongo River with our tandem on his back… This only continued my spiral deep into being clearly identified as the dumb gringo tourist on an odd-ball “bicycleta grande” with his beautiful, much more bilingual, wife.

9/27 to 9/29/2015 – The wonderful fall continued to roll on in NW Montana, with warm temperatures and dry trail conditions that only helped encourage a bit of exploration. My good buddy Joe and I realized that we had a matching 3-day weekend in late September, and figured that we should wander up into the […]Read more "Another Jaunt in the Whitefish Range"
