Where in the world have you been? Part 1

It has been a long time since we have posted anything on the blog- it has been on my mind and quite honestly I have missed it.  So much has happened in the last several months so I thought I’d try to give a bit of an update and include some pictures.  I hope to start posting new recipes again soon.


July – We went backpacking again.  Last year we went on a 60 mile, eight day trip with a few friends (read the post here). This year Jordan and I decided to do the whole John Muir Trail, all 210 miles of it.

 Well, we were out for 20 days, but we only did 185 miles because of some unforeseen challenges.  We hope to finish the last 25 miles next year.  It was such an amazing experience- brutally hard and breathtakingly beautiful!  We met some of the nicest people too which was an incredible blessing.


This was one of many nights that we got to camp together and commiserate about the day’s challenges!


Just like last year, the scenery was what kept us going! The sunset over Wanda Lake was beyond beautiful! 

August- We barely got home from our John Muir Trail trip and then we left on a two week family camping trip.  We went to June Lake, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite.  We even took the family back onto the John Muir Trail for a little day hike.  Here are a few pictures from that adventure!

Well that rounds out our summer- we pretty much camped the whole time! 

Watch for a post about Jordan going off to college, coming soon!
