Back in may Kazuko & Pascal gave us some French potato starts. We planted them in some big Airpots then forgot about them! We finally go around to digging some of them up this past weekend.

2013/10/13: Chizuru, Chiyoko & I took advantage of another great October weather day & hiked up Barrett Spur from Vista Ridge on Hood. We made it up to 7300' for some great views of the mountain covered in fresh snow. We did fight some clouds, cold wind & ice on the way up but broke through the cloud layer just before reaching the end of the hike. Perfect timing!

2013/09/27: We were rained out of the Woods last weekend & this weekend promised to be even worse! With a rare Friday off work we decided to see if we could get a quick hike in Friday morning before the deluge of rain began. We managed a quick 6 mile loop from Timberline Lodge over to the Zigzag Canyon then up the Canyon side then back cross country to the Silcox Hut. We got back to the Lodge just as the rain was beginning! There we met Youshi Kasai (Wonderer) who had come over from Japan to through hike the PCT. We wished him well & good luck in getting through Washington State before the snows arrive.
