This weekend the Barlow crew attended Bloomsday 2018 in Spokane WA. I grew up near Spokane in the 70s and 80s and I can’t believe that I have never done a Bloomsday… Anyhow, it ended up as an item on my running bucket list and I’m happy to report that it is now successfully crossed […]
Last week we took a trip from the Seattle area to Vancouver to visit Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and found that it is well worth the drive.

Getting to the Winchester Mountain Lookout in the North Cascades, Mt. Baker area is harder on your car than it is on your legs. The drive to the top involves a seven mile, single lane dirt road with some big potholes and more than a few washout areas.
