Meeting Jacques Biological Aunts

Meeting Jacques Biological Aunts

My first night with Jacque’s family was at Her aunt’s house in Boise Idaho. As soon as we opened the door we were greeted with smiles, hugs, and food!   In attendance were two aunts, a grandmother, and a grandfather. I was once again embraced as part of the family instantly.   This immediate “You love Jacque, Jacque loves you, you’re part of the family” attitude is something Jacque’s biological family has in common with her adoptive family. There seemed to be…

Trip to the Moon

Trip to the Moon

I will say now a few days out in a hotel I feel amazing. I had one night the day after we got back I got super tired and felt just a mess. I got overwhelmed and tired and was about to throw in the towel for some site seeing and other stuff until I remembered WWDS (What Would Dan Say). My boyfriend has a way of supporting me without protecting or really even supporting. Its more just holding back…

Lake Jenny – With My Favorite Jenny

Lake Jenny – With My Favorite Jenny

The day after we got back from the Wyoming Wilderness we planned to go to Yellowstone. Many of the group told us that the traffic getting to and from Yellowstone was going to be quite bad and that it would be worth seeing the Grand Teton Park which was closer and had lots of options for hiking and sight seeing.   So Jenn and I headed to Lake Jenny nestled just at the base of The Grand. On the 20-minute drive…

Wyoming – The Real Trip

Wyoming – The Real Trip

Most photos in this post were taken by Beau So here is where I am going to take a turn. I’ve been outlining our days and events of this backpacking trip and as I am writing it I am boring myself.   There was so much to tell and so many moments.   “We” (the collective group) had inside jokes and quotes and moments that took our collective and individual breaths away.   I have been telling a step-by-step account of each day…

Wyoming Backpacking – Day 2

Wyoming Backpacking – Day 2

Day two started with a good breakfast of oatmeal and the group finding out that M&K were not going to be moving on. They were early enough in the trip that LJ would hike them back to the car, drive them to Jackson Hole, drive back to the trail head and hike back to meet us sometime later that night or the next morning. We headed up a mountain straight away that day. The elevation from our first night to…

Wyoming Backpacking – Day 1

Photo taken by Beau! Day one of our backpacking adventure really started after a morning of packing and repacking our packs and an hour and a half van ride over the Teton Pass into Idaho. From there we made it to the Jedadiah Smith Wilderness and the trailhead that would start our adventure through the Teton Range.   Our group was split into two groups of 10 starting from opposite ends of the same trek with the hope of finding sites…

Thru Hiking and Fear

Thru Hiking and Fear

As a hiker I often daydream about doing one of the large “thru hikes”. A “Thru Hike” is a hike that goes end to end of a particular trail. To “thru Hike” means you don’t leave the trail expect for resupply and clean up along the route.   Most common trails for thru hiking in the US are the Appalachian Trail in the east and Pacific Crest Trail in the west. These take on average 6 months to hike.   I know…
