notes from arcadia

In which I chronicle my days and adventures through pictures and words.

Themes: art, cocktails & spirits, cooking, canning, growing vegetables, wine, music, running, need v.s. want, arrange, de-clutter, relationships.

Basically, more than the mundane, less than the extraordinary.
Mt. Washington trail hike. Felt like we were floating above clouds on this spectacular afternoon.  Never seen it quite so encapsulating before. #Igers_Seattle #Igers_Seattle_TuesdayChallenge #ActivelyNW #nothingisordinary #nature #nw #wa_nderlust #hiking #hike #seattle
