Icelandair Stopover Buddy Adventure with ATV – Óbyggðaferðir (Post 1 of 2)
As part of my trip to Iceland for Canopy by Hilton in November 2016, the Stopover Buddy service from Icelandair took us out of Reykjavík for an incredible adventure riding ATVs around Three Horn Mountain near Lambalækur, Iceland. Unnar Gardarsson of ATV – Óbyggðaferðir was our leader at the site, and I must admit he took us on one of the best trips I can remember as we slid through snow banks, forded icy rivers, admired waterfalls and volcanos, and then ate a wonderful lunch in an eighth-century monk's cave on a cliffside. On the first part of our adventure...
Portraits of Me, by Gaby Alvarez
A couple weeks ago in Culver City and Venice Beach, California, I got my portrait taken by my good friend, photographer Gaby Alvarez. She shot me with her Mamiya 645 camera.
OMHT Lake Project: Enid Lake, or Getting Lost Trying to Find It
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. This post is on that "half lake," as it were. It is on Enid Lake, a supposedly fun little spot just west Government Camp, Oregon... Or rather, this post would be about Enid, except I could not find it!
Fun Signs at Ripplebrook Ranger Station
Recently I did a wonderful lake project for Oregon's Mount Hood Territory. At one point (getting lost looking for Lake Harriet), we stopped at the Ripplebrook forest ranger station. They were nice and helpful, which was much appreciated as there is no cell phone service in that part of the Cascades. A great place to stop and stretch your legs when you're in the area!
They also had some wonderful signs that I grabbed these snapshots of.
