So it’s been a while since I’ve gone camping. I had to look it up, but it’s actually been 4 YEARS! What… the fuck…? That just seems wrong. I used to go hiking 3x a week. Now it’s backed off quite a bit. What’s up with that?

Anyways, I just went back out to the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and I grabbed some cameras to shoot video and timelapse the whole time. :) It was a lot of fun. We hiked out to Rachel Lake and then the Rampart Lakes. It was a pretty challenging hike, especially since we inadvertently went off trail and hiked up the side of the cliff instead of taking the normal trail up, but the scenery made it SO worth it! 😀

Here’s a look at the trip. :)

To change things up a bit and keep trying something new, we decided to stay on a yacht for a few nights as well.  If you can, why not!? There’s a lot of similarities to staying in a hotel, but because you’re on a boat there’s also quite a few differences, some of which are obvious and others which I started finding out about once I was aboard. :)

While down in Portland we stayed in two wildly awesome hotels that my friend Emily who lives in the city recommended and has been wanting to check out for ages. One was a more traditional hotel with one of the greatest hotel breakfasts I’ve ever had and the other was a funkier animal themed one with all sorts of unexpected animal goodies everywhere.

Chris Hadfield!!!

November 7, 2014 | Category: Events, Oregon, Space, Travel | Leave a Comment

One person on (and off!) this planet that I really admire is the Canadian astronaut, Chris Hadfield. He was one of the commanders of the International Space Station where he made really cool youtube videos showing what life is like in zero gravity, shot tons of photos from space and posted them on twitter where they went viral with how insanely incredible they were, he has flown both the American Space Shuttle and the Russian Soyuz, and he even made a music video from space! Seriously, the guy is incredible. I recently found out that he’d be coming to town this past weekend and I rearranged my entire schedule to make sure I could go see how speak live. Not only was it incredible to see him speak in person, but even how everything played out to get to see him was fantastic…

Tree house in Capitol Hill

Sometimes the Universe decides that it’d be a fun idea to let you go travel around and live wherever you want and in all sorts of cool new places free of charge. It may not happen when you expect or in a way you expect, but I just discovered that it definitely does happen! 😀

I had some free time today so I went to over to watch the RedBull GRC which was happening in the mountains only 20 minutes from my house. What is that, you may ask? It’s basically rally racing on a dirt/mud racetrack.

Bouncing on a bridge at TreeHouse Point

Ariel exploring TreeHouse Point

So it turns out that less than 15 minutes away from me, there’s this place that has a whole bunch of treehouses called TreeHouse Point. I didn’t know more about it than that so I contacted them and a few days later headed over to go check it out. It turns out there’s a TV show that’s filmed here and everything! It’s a really rad place and I shot a bunch of photos to share with you guys. Let’s jump right into it! Read more

On the way back from the ECETI ranch, I made a quick detour to the Columbia River Gorge. The road had a name like “Waterfall Highway” so I decided to visit one of my fav. places on earth. :) It turned out to be a great place to take a break from driving!

You’ve got waterfalls, wonderful hikes, and a couple even got engaged! (She said yes!) Take a look at the video. It’s one of my favorite that I’ve put together so far. :)
