A cabin and an abandoned train tunnel art gallery

A cabin on a mountaintop. Good friends. Jumping into alpine lakes. Rum cocktails blended with fresh  fruit. Fresh greens, veggies and sheep from Moonridge Farm. A walk through an abandoned train tunnel filled with graffiti near Donner Pass. Good times.

Up next: finally the big adventure hike continues! Over 200 miles through the Sierra on foot!

Moonridge Farm

we love cory and julie

spence here… we just got back from a nice trip to everett, washington. our dear friends cory and julie, who live in seattle, got married this weekend. what an amazing, wonderful, simple, loving ceremony–a true testament to cory and julie’s love for their families, friends and each other. the weather was supreme, the dancing exceptional (thanks to julian and billy) and the food 5 star. i slept well in our swank hotel room, the first actual “bed” i’ve slept on in a few years actually. makes me sort of rethink the whole futon thing. billy had the most amazing boots.  thrift store portland style. i felt pretty happy about the haircut billy gave me, the bow ties cory and the rest of the wedding party wore, the pilsner libations served at the wedding party barn and the tasty quiche at brunch.  thank you so much cory and julie for inviting us and making us apart of your wonderful family. i’m glad to be in the julie mafia. it was nice to reconnect with a few of their seattle friends as well. bon voyage to costa rica you crazy kids… i’ll be thinking of you.

Dear Cory and Julie,

You rock. Thank you for being you. Hope you’re having some good times in Costa Rica! We forgot your lovely handmade peanut butter gifts! Dnag!

love, Billy
