Please donate to my 3rd Harbor to Harbor Adventure HERE. Thank you 🙂 When the hairbrained looney tunes drunken errr....wait no, INSPIRED notion to do both the 2018 Project Athena Harbor to Harbor adventure AND the 2018 Grand Canyon Rim2Rim2Rim adventure hit me, the next thing I thought was "Who are you? WTF?!" OK, so the NEXT thing... Continue Reading →
One of many new things I have jumped into in the last couple of years is exploring spirituality. I should add "again" to that sentence. Back in high school I loved walking up to the local book store and planting myself on the floor of the Occult and Metaphysical section. I devoured books on astrology,... Continue Reading →

Gentle readers, I would love your help! In the grand semi/sporadic tradition that I started back in 2002 when I walked in my first of three Breast Cancer 3-day events, I am back on the walking trail again in 2016.

I haven’t forgotten my hiking and birding site. I just haven’t been in ages! Thankfully some friends came to visit forcing me to get out on the trails with my new camera – enjoy!
The slideshow below is from a rather late afternoon hike at the trails of Torrey Pines with friends of min who were visiting from Wisconsin.
