The start of the year is a time of renewal. This was the year I had intended to kick start my blogs. But look, it's already, well almost March. And already this year I have been on a few adventures that I want to share. Adventures may be too strong a word. Anything that involves going somewhere and doing something outdoors classifies as an adventure for me. Your adrenalin level may vary.
In January I took a trip to southern Utah with my older son. We skied Brian Head and visited Bryce Canyon and Zion. I want to tell you what a great place Brian Head is and how smaller ski resorts like Brian Head are where you should be spending your time and money, because your money goes a lot farther there. These ski areas care about you and make skiing fun again and affordable for families.
I explored a little piece of Whidbey Island in late January, Ebey's Landing, a popular place. On a rare mild winter day you can get ahead of the crowd with an early start before the masses figure out the day's weather.
And lastly, I rode the Chilly Hilly bicycle ride this year (February 22). The annual ride circumnavigates Bainbridge Island and marks the opening of bicycling season in western Washington. It's been a mild winter and the weather was perfect on the ride. Next ride up, the McClinchy Mile, the OsoStrong version.
Stay with me my friends.
