OMHT Lake Project: Timothy Lake
In November 2015 I worked with Oregon's Mount Hood Territory (OMHT) to explore seven (and a half) lakes south of Mount Hood in 48 hours. I loved them all, but the real surprise for me was Timothy Lake, a large, gorgeous body of water southeast of Government Camp. It's a jewel, and I am amazed I'd not visited previously. But I will certainly return.
Venice: Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista
In December 2015 I was lucky enough to get a private tour of the amazing Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista in Venice, Italy. The scuola has been a part of Venice civic life for eight centuries and still serves as a wonderful event space for the community.
