Schweitzer Mountain

I am finally living in North Idaho. Not really moved in and there are a lot of giant loose ends but I’m catching the tail end of summer!

My sister and her family came out for my first official week here. We took a really fun outing up Schweitzer Mountain. We road the chair lift up to the 6,400 foot summit then hiked down 2.5 miles (2,440 feet elevation change) to the ski village. It was a breathtaking vista and a beautiful sunny day. We carried to go cup drinks up the chair lift and snacked on mountain huckleberries most of the way down the mountain.

What a great day!

Closet History

image.jpegI am packing up my house and preparing to move to Idaho. Eleven years I have enjoyed living here but it is time for a new adventure.

It is interesting to see all the stuff I have squirreled away. This bedroom closet was packed with art work from my college years and into the mid 90’s. I ¬†took one photo to try capture the past.

Tunnel then Jubilation

I live in a beautiful rural setting. I love the wildlife and privacy, but like everything good, I take it for granted.

Rolling along my eyes looking away from the world and into my own dark brain. Something brings the light back, this “forest tunnel” is the kind of thing I have grown blind to. Then in the evening with the headlights on… what could make me happier.
