I feel like I've been in constant motion for the past few months. Things have settled down a bit now that the holidays have passed. Ahhhh! a sigh of relief. Now I have a little time to waste updating this ol' blog. I was home visiting the family in Pennsylvania over Thanksgiving and went on an overnight bike tour with two old friends I haven't seen in awhile. It was part wild edible plants foraging, part guerilla camping and part liesurely stroll down the rail trail from York, PA to Maryland. Here are a few pics. Me next to a bad ass John Deere inspired bike sculpture. And then a pic of James climbing a hill on our early morning return.
Then I returned to Portland for a week and went to Maui the next week. I'd never really been somewhere tropical like this. The snorkeling was definitely the highlight of the trip but I unfortunately don't have any photos of that. I was swimming right next to sea turtles, eels, cuddlefish, and all sorts of vibrantly colored fish. Here is a pic of a waterfall though on the north shore. Thats all for now.
