My friend Julie and I went climbing in the North Cascades, then wrote about it for the MSR blog.
At noon on April 25th, 2015, I was walking on a rocky trail in the valley between the tiny Nepalese villages of Chukhung and Dingboche. I had summited Island Peak 24 hours before, and I was humming Taylor Swift songs and thinking about my next hot meal. Then, without warning, the ground started to shake.
Huckleberry was given a gorgeous new coat, which was handmade by Janet. She designed it, sized it perfectly, and even hand-waxed the canvas. Obviously it needed to be taken for a romp in the snow.
I recently spent a fun weekend collaborating with folks from Rite in the Rain, a Tacoma-based company that makes waterproof notebooks and other all-weather writing products.
