Fullerton Loop Trail -- Nov 16, 2009 - From the archives

Every year I forget how late the snow comes to the mountains. Fall hiking is probably my favorite time of year. Once the snow hits, I'm barely able to wait until there's enough for snowshoeing, but it's always nice to sneak a late fall hike in a familiar spot and see the brown and yellow fall colouring for the last time that year...

Putting the Hip in HipHiker...

While HipHiker the geek has been sucked into the Twitter vortex for some time, HipHiker the blogger hasn't really committed to it... until now.

Find and follow us at @HipHiker. I think it could be a lot of fun....

And... we're back

Hello old friends.

It's been a while since I've last updated this site. Real life took over for a while.

Family health issues led to a decline in available time, and blogging was something that had to be put on hold. That temporary hold led to a much longer one as my own medical issue developed, but that was a much nicer situation.

Our twin boys were born in March of 2011. ;-)

So for now the HipHiker and crew are back, maybe hiking a little less (and snowshoeing!), maybe posting a little infrequently. Maybe sharing the joys of the boys' first excursions onto the trails come spring (Grassi Lakes, my eye is on you). Maybe taking it a little easier as this old body gets back into shape (but not that much easier).

There will definitely be some clean up, some moving of things around.

It's nice to be back. I've missed you.
