Playing in the Sand

Sand Dunes National Park is a surprising place. First of all, many people don't even know it exists. It's a very small park and was given national park status in the early 2000s.

This video is a little recap of our... Continue Reading →

Winter Green

The green never really goes away in the Pacific Northwest, creating a sense of eternal life in the region that invigorates everyone there to spend more time outdoors. The Goodman Creek Trail in the Willamette National Forest is just a half hour from where I lived last year in Springfield, Oregon. Though we never got... Continue Reading →

Swiftcurrent

Glacier National Park has tons of amazing hikes, and the Swiftcurrent Pass Hike is no exception. The trail winds through forests, across snow, and then up a rocky mountain to arrive at the Swiftcurrent peak where there is a fire tower lookout. The nature changes constantly with views of mountains, lakes, and wildlife abound. The... Continue Reading →
