Getting Remote In South East Oregon

Steens Mountains

Spring break, a week to seek out sunshine in the desert or at the beach! We decided to risk it and head west and north to see what we could see. Driving across Nevada often feels like looping deja vu. Up a mountain pass, down a mountain pass, across a valley and repeat. Typically there are clear skies, sagebrush as far as you can see, semi trucks, mini vans, the occasional highway patrol. Last week we drove west through wind, snow,

Thank you, Cassini

As much as I love spaceships, UFOs, blankets of stars, shooting stars, sparkly planets, the milky way and moons, I am not a true space nerd. I did have a climbing partner who went to work for Space X, have a brother who works on power supplies for rockets that take satellites into space, and my dad has a badass telescope that he brought to Gooseberry Mesa once, carefully cradled in the backseat of his truck. We saw the rings

Emma the Dog

My dog Mack is the official love dog, but the story of true love in our house starts with the scrappy Catahoula, Emma. I never wanted a dog (you can’t leave town! They are so dirty!

We went to the Super Adoption, just to look, where all
