Last weekend we embarked on our second hike in Utah. We chose the Crimson Trail. We thought 3 miles were doable. What we didn’t realize is that the loop includes the Riverside Nature Trail and a little piece of trail to get to the beginning of Crimson Trail making the whole trip about 4.5 miles. Also, the trail was not an easy trail with an elevation gain of about 1000 feet and lots of steep, snowy, icy, and I must say, treacherous areas.

In honor of the record low temperatures and masses of white snow that the US East Coast has been getting, I present to you a photo collection of the color white around the world from across my travels.
The color of fresh snow and milk, white, can emanate a very peaceful feeling often representing light rather than darkness, purity and cleanliness.
I don’t know about you but some of my favorite simple pleasures in life are freshly clean bed sheets, and milk and cookies. Both featuring the color white or its depiction.
Last weekend we decided to grab our most hiking-appropriate clothes and drive an hour and a half towards Mt. Hood, Oregon.
On the way there, we decided to stop where a few cars were parked on Highway 26 and headed towards the Mirror Lake Trail which we hiked in sub 20 degrees Fahrenheit and in a hurry because we started late. I was very proud of myself by the end of it as I had only hiked once before in my life and it was mostly just a long walk in a state park during a nice day.

Since I was a little girl, my family took me skiing. We used to go to Vail, Colorado for many years. One year, they decided to try a new place: Whistler in BC, Canada. We all fell in love with it. The mountain, the trails, the town, the restaurants, the shopping, everything was great. So we kept going every year. Continue reading “My Favorite Ski Resort Town: Whistler, BC Canada”→

Portland, OR got about 4 inches of snow yesterday, and it is still snowing right now. It is always quiet around here where we are staying, but this morning, when I woke up it felt even quieter. I could feel the energy of the city was very tranquil, like people were staying home. It’s a weekday, but it doesn’t seem to matter. We are getting a lot of answering machines today trying to make appointments for several things which confirms that a lot of people are not working today.
The feeling overall this day is very peaceful.
So, since many of you are home today, and even if you’re not, here are a few links to entertain you:
