Schilter Family Farm

Uhhhh Black Friday...We don't do Black Friday and typically we don't head out...there is no need. If I had needed something I would have had it already, and I am not buying for the act of buying. Anyhow that being said, this year we had to head out...it was market day. Lucky the markets were... Continue Reading →

Evergreen Campus

The other day we decided to check out the trails on the Evergreen College campus. Let me tell you this is an amazing campus. I wish I would have known about it 30 years ago... Anyhow you don't need a permit or to pay for parking in the weekends so we took advantage. There were... Continue Reading →

Mushroom Hunt – Tolmie

Sadly we didn't see any newts, but we did spot TONS of mushrooms.   What I believe to be a jellyfish that came in with the tide... And more mushrooms. We... Continue Reading →

Mushroom Hunt

The other D and myself headed on out ofter the rain to see what we could find along the trail. It had been a bit since we had explored Burfoot Park and we were curious what the autumn weather would bring. There were soooo many mushrooms along the trail, many I have never seen before....
