A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Inaugural snowshoeing adventure

The mountains are our respite. The only thing we focus on while we are there is breathing deep, snapping a few photos and pinching ourselves that this as our playground.

Sometimes in life you have those "why didn't we do this sooner" moments. A couple weeks ago we finally bought an insulated thermos. For the amount of time we spend outdoors, I am uncertain why we never did this before. Now we can enjoy hot chocolate or warm soup trailside. I guess in the past we preferred to just embrace the cold.

I would not mind looking out my window to see this each day.

This section of the trail always reminds me of The Grinch. I think it is all those icicles hanging off the rocks.

As the days continue to get shorter, it means we get to enjoy twilight up in the mountains.
