The weather forecast looked a little ominous, scattered rain showers dotting the weather map. We had been getting a fair amount of lightning in the evening, which made me rethink our weekend plans. I didn’t want to miss out on this hike, regardless of the weather. We had been planning to go up to Pine […]


Cranberry-Avocado Salad with Candied Spiced Almonds

Posted on August 30th, 2012 by Jess Food Photo/Video

This is the salad recipe that I came across with the Candied Spiced Almonds. It also has homemade dressing. Brent and I enjoyed this salad with a night in as the smoke outside was thick. We didn’t feel like breathing in a bunch of smoke. We made an inside date night instead. Enjoy this salad […]

I came across a recipe for a salad that had these candied spiced almonds. I made the salad, so I had to make these as well. They turned out tasty and I am excited to have leftovers! They might not last too long. Ingredients: 5 cups sliced almonds 1/2 cup sugar 3 tablespoons butter 2 […]

Passage Falls 21

Once again, another catch up photo-blog post, this time with pictures from our Passage falls hike. It was an easy, relatively flat hike that took us through a forest that was recovering after a fire. Truly a beautiful place. Enjoy!

I’m playing a bit of catch-up here with some photos, so here are my pictures from Corbly Gulch. It was a beautiful hike that we did in July. Enjoy the pictures!


STP Day Two!

Posted on August 28th, 2012 by Brent Life Photo/Video

The day started early. I awoke mildly uncomfortably damp in the enclosed atmosphere of the tent, condensation running down the walls. At least I had padding in the form of grass, which meant my rest was more satisfactory than the night previous. I don’t like waking up, especially when uncomfortable. My stubborn desire for sleep […]

I know, I know… I’ve been slacking not only on food blogging, but blogging in general. Sorry all. Maybe life will start calming down a bit more. Who knows? Sometimes when I am crazy busy I find myself blogging more. I think the reason I have not been blogging lately is because I was feeling […]


Grand Teton Relay – The Beginnings

Posted on August 25th, 2012 by Jess Life Run/Hike/Bike

For the last several months, I had been putting a team of 12 people plus 2 volunteers together for the 180 mile Grand Teton Relay. Last year I had heard of this relay, but I unfortunately did not know enough runners to get a team of 12 together. This year, a guy I knew wanted […]


One Backpacking Trip

Pine Creek Lake

A few weekends ago, Brent and I took some friends up to Pine Creek Lake that we had discovered last year. To be honest, I didn’t really want to go because there was a good chance that it was going to rain. Brent and our friends still wanted to go, so I of course went […]


Early Morning Grotto Falls Hike

Posted on August 6th, 2012 by Jess Life Photo/Video

We had some company come into town this past weekend. One of which had never been to Bozeman. We decided to get out the door early in the morning on Saturday and head up to our wonderful Hyalite for a quick hike before exploring the town. It was a very chilly morning. So chilly in […]
