Bruce (“VanMarmot”) and Linda (“LovedOne”) here, deep in the State of Jefferson (Oregon). A few years ago we moved beyond the bonds of work to living through hiking, backpacking, rafting, snowshoeing, traveling, and fiber arts – and some heady volunteerism.
This website is a work-in-progress repository for text (some) and images (many) recording our outdoor and other adventures, with the proviso that we only post about stuff that we’ve done ourselves. In that regard, we’ve had many amazing experiences out there back of beyond. While a few of these were, to be honest, on the less-than-stellar side, none, whether excellent or dubious, were ever boring.
Sadly, despite repeated readings of Emily Brontë, we’re still short on poetical literary skills. Thus our posts lean more toward informative than toward emotive. Still, we hope they’re interesting enough to encourage you to go out, hike your own hikes, and experience the wonderous convolutions of Nature for yourself.
