Sleep-deprived in Seattle

Last night, I slept at an airport. I spent the evening out with my cousins for food and drinks, and had a godawful early barely-morning flight to Seattle. So, basically, I shoved some couches together in a corner under some stairs, napped for 2 hours, and spent an unreasonably long time in a security line.... Continue Reading →


Alberta, again

I kicked off my summer vacation with a long weekend in Alberta. I know, you're thinking I went to Banff, West Edmonton Mall, the Stampede. No to all of the above. Alberta and I are reaaaally well acquainted at this point, and I didn't bother with anything touristy. I can't stand the Banff crowds in... Continue Reading →

It doesn`t help that this summer vacation actually was shorter (we finished later and Labour Day is early... a... Continue Reading →

But, every Thanksgiving weekend, I make an exception, and hike Owl's Head ski hill in Mansonville, Quebec. They have an annual Autumn Fest that runs the Thanksgiving weekend and the two weekends...

Last Saturday we headed out for a third Adirondacks hiking expedition of the season. Since days are shorter, nights are colder, and life is more hectic, we decided to make it a day trip instead of the usual weekender, so we chose Poke-o-Moonshine Mountain, as it's located about 20 minutes south of Plattsburgh, right off...
