Women Outdoors, and Oregon

I am tardy -- the girls are finishing up their schoolwork and we've been swamped with obligations.  I will have to post the photos from our last two hikes after we return from our two upcoming, back-to-back trips. 

Our first trip is to Oregon, where we will learn some new mountaineering skills.

The second trip is to Women Outdoors' Annual Gathering in NH, where I will be the keynote speaker.  I look forward to giving this talk and to meeting other female adventurers -- it is an honor to be invited to such an amazing event!

In the meantime, check out Alex's blog for photos and trip reports from our most recent hikes.

Alex's trip report of our recent Moosilauke hike can be found here.  Alex now writes the trip reports; Sage will too when she turns 13.  I encourage you good people who follow this blog to now follow Alex's.  The following are my photos from the hike, posted here for my own record-keeping purposes.

Hiking with John Meyers -- always fun!
