Random Photos from 2017

I'm so far behind on getting posts up on the blog, that I'm going to use this one to collect some random photos that don't really have a home, or need a post on their own. We'll see how that works out as a sort through the past few months worth of photos.

Portland, Bend and a Fun Mountain Biking Trip

Last week Justine and I took some time off to do a road trip down into Oregon to do some mountain biking around Bend, Oregon. We made a stop in Portland on the way down, had four days in Bend, and then a long drive home on the holiday Monday. We rode some of the best trails in the area, did a day in a bike park, spent some time with friends from back east and generally had an amazing time!

Backcountry Camping at Garibaldi Lake

This summer, Justine and I are planning to do a series of backcountry hiking/camping, with a goal of doing a few days on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). We've both done this before, but it's been a while, so we decide to start with something easy to test out our gear, and make sure everything was set. We decided to do one night up at Garibaldi Lake, which is a beautiful setting, and only about 9.5 km from the parking lot. Mind you, that's all uphill...

Nice and Monaco

Another old post from the summer. The continuation of my two-week trip to Europe, left me with a weekend to myself, to find some new adventures. I was coming from Copenhagen, and needed to end up in Toulouse, but it was up to me to decide where to stay in between. I settled on Nice, in the south of France on the Mediterranean, as it was a place I had not been before, and it looked like fun.

A Big Trip to Europe - Next Stop Copenhagen

The next stop on my trip was a couple of days in Denmark. One of our Partners met me at the airport and we drove up to Fredensborg, about 30 minutes north of Copenhagen. It's also home to Fredensborg Palace, the summer palace of the Danish Royal Family. They weren't home, so you could wander the grounds and enjoy the amazing scenery. After some meetings in Fredensborg, I spent the night at a great old hotel, had some meetings the next day then headed down to Copenhagen for the night.
