7-2-08 Glacier Nat'l Park- Grinnell Glacier & Lake


IMGP2120.jpg

The Grinnell Glacier/Lake Hike is phenomenal. We couldn't believe how much this area resembles central Switzerland. The flowers were unbelievable, and as the clouds drifted past us through the valley at eye level, it was utterly surreal. These are some of the best pictures of the trip.

7-3-08 Glacier Nat'l Park- Waterton, Canada Mtn Biking


IMGP2205.jpg

Wanting to see what the Northern part of Glacier looks like, we crossed the border to the Canadian side called Waterton Lakes Nat'l Park. We rode about 9 miles on rented Mtn bikes, then, fearing bears, came back to the car to find a family of Billy goats licking bugs off the bumpers. We saw 3 (!!) bears on our way out of the area, then enjoyed some Canadian beer on the shore of Loon Lake.

7-4-08 Glacier Nat'l Park- Iceberg Lake, Cracker Hike, Many Glacier Lodge


IMGP2251.jpg

We took a 9 mile guided hike to Iceberg Lake with Kara, a park ranger, who did an amazing job explaining the geology, flora and fauna of the area. Then we hiked back towards Cracker Lake on a horse trail, and when it started to T-Storm we cut the hike shore and slopped miles back through the muddiest, nastiest, sloppiest horse trail ever. After a shower at the Many Glacier Motor Inn, we finished the day with a fancy dinner at the Many Glacier Hotel.

IMGP2366.jpg

9:15AM Sunday July 13 found us on a 17 mile hike up the South Loop trail, through The Meadows, reaching the 11,918 ft Summit (in the clouds) at 1:15, and heading down the North Loop trail to the Trail Canyon Trail. Although we heard distant thunder all morning, it wasn't until 5:30pm when the sky darkened and the rain fell in torrents! Thankfully we had just made it back to the car!

9-13-08 New VW TDI, California PCH Rt 1


IMGP2616.jpg

On Sat Aug 13 we flew from Vegas to Oakland, CA to take delivery of our brand new 2009 TDI (diesel) SportWagen. Who fly so far? Because it has the elusive 6 speed manual with panoramic sunroof and reflex silver exterior with black leatherette interior, that's why! We then drown from San Francisco down Pacific Rt 1, which is an amazing drive!

7-19-08 Mt Whitney, CA


IMGP2424.jpg

7-19-08, Day trip to Mt Whitney, highest peak in the continental 48 states. Andy had knee issues which stopped his ascent at just over 12K ft, but Briar made it to the 14K+ ft summit!! Since Andy reached the summit in 2007, now we both can claim highest peak in the lower 48!

You gotta love station wagons- it was in the 20's at night but we were toasty warm- even left the windows partway open all night! Then a day of biking around town and Mtn Biking up on the trails at the top of the ski runs, followed by dinner at the Oktoberfest Celebration.

IMGP2987.jpg

We drove up to Mt Charleston to see if the snow was down below 8500 ft (which is as high as you can drive), and it wasn't, but on the way back down Lee canyon we did encounter something much more exciting!!

February 27-March 2 found us at "Northstar At Tahoe" Resort on a retreat with Soraya, Jose, Amy & Tim. The views were breathtaking, the food was tremendous, the skiing was sublime (when the snow wasn't slushy), the accommodations were second to none, and our whole crew got along like old friends.

IMGP3381.jpg

The weekend of March 7-8 found us in Sandy, Utah, staying with some relatives of our friends from Vegas: Scott, Terry & Katie M. They live at the entrance of the canyon that includes Snowbird & Alta ski resorts, so we spent Saturday on the slopes. Great snow, single digit temps at the summit, lots of varied terrain, and tons of fun back home with our host family!

3-14-09 Brian Head, Utah Skiing/Boarding w/ Jace


IMGP3400.jpg

For our last weekend of Skiing/Boarding of winter '08-'09, what better place to wind up than Brian Head. Our (east-coast native) Vegas friend Jace joined us as we explored the West mountain (down to Navajo lodge) for the 1st time (!!). Temps in the low 30's and fresh snow during the previous week made for a good sending-off of this winter season.

IMGP3408.jpg

Even though the Phillies lost to the Minnesota Twins 2-1, there is no nicer way to spend the first full day of Spring in Clearwater, Florida than lounging in the grass beyond the outfield fence at the Phillies spring training home field. 79 degrees and mostly sunny.

6-28-09 Brian Head Summit


IMGP4171.jpg

A "short hike" out behind our place turned into us scaling the scree fields on the SW side of Brian Head summit. I do NOT recommend this route to reach the summit- it was very loose and we should have had gloves. Strangely enough, this was our very first trip all the way to the summit- all of our previous trips up there stopped short at the Sidney Peaks trail head.

This is the infamous Zion water hike: "The Narrows." We only hiked 1 mile into the canyon (to the Y where the canyons split) but 2 miles of hiking in the river took HOURS! Mom & Dad Logee joined us for the fun! The temps in Zion were 110+ that day, but it was very cool in the narrows.
