For my 63rd birthday, I did my annual birthday hike up Camp Muir on July 12th. Craig Schilling and Chloe Wei celebrated my day with me.
This was my third trip up to Press Lake Canada.
A group of us (Rick & Linna Freeman, Craig Schilling & Tao Song & Emelie & Eric Espling) rented a house near Hood River, Oregon for some local hiking and some big in-house gourmet meals together.
Five other couples joined Linna and I for a beautiful fall weekend in the Winthrop, Washington area for a three day weekend filled with food, friendship and fun.
All of us hiked up Maple Pass on Saturday and spent most of our time taking pictures of the fall colors.
We Got To The Maple Pass Parking Lot About 7:30 a.m. And All The Parking Spots Were Full So We Parked Along Highway Like Everybody Else.
Linna And I Met Up With Jim And Ione Darmiento On Thursday to Start Our Long Weekend In Glacier, Washington. Jim Rented A Super Cool Three Bedroom Airbnb That We Took Full Advantage Of The kitchen.
Our First Hike On Thursday Was A Short Hike On Table Mountain. Next Day Was Yellow Easter Butte…But It Was So Socked In From The Clouds The Views Were Thick Soup.

Linna booked a trip to the beautiful remote Redoubt Lodge in Alaska.

It’s becoming a tradition on my birthday to hike up Camp Muir on Mount Rainier if I am not flying somewhere to celebrate.
My second fishing trip to Press Lake located in Ontario, Canada.
Did a boys only trip to Puerto Vallarta and the small fishing village of Yelapa.
We were needing a break from the Northwest rain and cool weather so my wife made up a trip for five of us to head
