Driving Through the North Cascades Pass

After our awesome motorcycle trip around the Olympic Peninsula for my birthday, I wanted to get back on the road for another long weekend trip on the bikes. Brian spent some time making sure they were still in good order, and I researched and booked a Labor Day weekend getaway to Winthrop via the North Cascades …

Ports of Call: Port Angeles and Port Townsend

I couldn't believe how quickly our motorcycle trip around the Olympic Peninsula flew by! From exploring La Push and its beaches to hiking Ruby Beach and the Hoh Rain Forest to discovering Cape Flattery and the Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway, we experienced so many incredible, new places and made incredible memories. By our last day, however, if …

Cape Flattery and the Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway

After two incredible days in Forks, visiting the beaches in La Push and exploring Ruby Beach and the Hoh Rain Forest, we climbed back on the motorcycles and headed north west-- in fact, we headed to the northwestern most point of the continental U.S., Cape Flattery! It was misty when we set out and unfortunately …

Overnight in Forks, Washington

Despite knowing we were going on this trip for some time, I was still booking things relatively last minute for our recent motorcycle trip around the Olympic Peninsula. I should have known better-- we were planning to go for my birthday, which is around 4th of July weekend, and things are always busy, no matter where …

The Beaches at La Push

Each day of our recent motorcycle trip around the Olympia Peninsula included something new--something we had never seen or done before. After arriving by ferry in Kingston and riding a ways, we made a quick stop for gas and brunch in Port Angeles. We popped in Cock-a-Doodle Doughnuts to snag a snack from among the last remaining …

Motorcycle Ride Around the Olympic Peninsula

For months I've been slowly putting together the pieces for the longest and farthest trip I've done on my motorcycle-- the northern loop of the Olympic Peninsula! I always plan a long weekend adventure over the fourth of July so I can make my birthday celebration last a little bit longer. More like a birthweek …

Hiking in Wallace Falls State Park

We didn't get to ride our motorcycles at all in 2015 due to Ohio weather, our move to the Pacific Northwest and  weather in Washington. Brian spent a ton of time getting them ready for this year-- there's a lot that needs checked and refreshed when they've been sitting for more than 12 months-- but his …

Hocking Hills Bike Trip

I can't believe another week has gone by. It's nice having the occasional holiday weekend, resulting in a shorter week following the celebration, which must be why it's already Sunday. I had a somewhat exciting Memorial Day weekend, from local fairs to headlining concerts to birthday and holiday picnics, wrapping up with a new trip …
