This blog began awhile ago and has taken on different forms, but mostly this blog is for me. I've always enjoyed keeping track of things I've done, places I've been, and interesting things I pick up - mostly recorded on scrap pieces of paper or the Notes app on my phone over the years. I realized I wanted to be able to have something a little more reliable for me to be able to reference and it's come in handy a couple of times – I hope whoever comes across this will find the information helpful (or at least the photos pretty to look at). I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2015 after spending the majority of my life in Texas and a brief year in San Francisco. I currently reside in Seattle, WA where the mountains are my playground.

"She has been feeling it for awhile now – that sense of awakening. This is a gentle rage simmering inside her, and it is getting stronger by the day. She will hold it close to her – she will nurture it and let it grow. She won't let anyone take it away from her. It is her rocket fuel and finally, she is going places. She can feel it down to her very core – this is her time. She will not only climb mountains – she will move them too."

I work a regular 9 to 5, but on the weekends you can find me climbing a mountain, hiking, rock climbing, skiing, backpacking, camping....well, you get it – Type II fun.

If you're not familiar with types of fun, Type II fun is the type of fun where you're miserable while doing it but it was super fun in retrospect...and then you do that kind of thing all over again.

The Fun Scale

Not all fun is created equal.

Type I Fun: Enjoyable while it's happening.

Type II Fun: Miserable while it's happening. Fun in retrospect.

Type III Fun: Not fun at all. Not even in retrospect.
