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.

Overnight backpacking trip: Snow Lake and Gem Lake (Part Two)


As we approached Gem Lake the clouds started to roll in, within minutes the lake was completely fogged in. I am never as acutely aware of nature as when I am hiking. The dew on the plants leaves, the clouds passing by, the new growth on the trees these are the things which consume my thoughts.


As we started our descent back to Snow Lake the clouds began to part and the sun tried its best to push through. Spots of red, orange and yellow are starting to remind us Fall is near.


Backpacking is such a wonderful experience. I highly recommend these types of weekend getaways for anyone who appreciates uninterrupted conversations under star filled skies.

End of Summer baking
