Year in Review | Best of 2017

Friday, December 29, 2017 Amy Galbraith

Holy wow! Just like that, we are already finished with another year. I’ll have to admit, this one really snuck up on me. I’ve been blessed with a lot this year, including finishing up the first year as the mama of sweet Banks. In all honesty, finding balance has been a total struggle and I […]

A Ladies Adventure | Backpacking Pear Lake

Saturday, August 19, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I just realized that I’ve been backpacking for almost 8 years now! It all started with a car-camping trip from hell. One that was complete with crying babies, crowded campsites, and garbage everywhere. We walked a short bit down a trail and low and behold, silence and solitude. I picked up an issue of “Backpacker” […]

Weekend Trip | Surfing La Push

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 Amy Galbraith

In my second life, I’m definitely a surfer. In fact, I think I might have been had my college path not brought me up to the University of Washington. My second choice was San Diego State. I spent my whole life visiting San Diego (a popular destination for Arizonans thanks to the quick drive and […]

Every year David and I do something awesome for our birthdays. His typically involves some sort of spring skiing trip (last year was Whistler, this year was White Pass) and mine has been a little different each time. This year I had really been itching to get up to the San Juan Islands again. I […]

First Family Vacation | Arizona

Thursday, April 13, 2017 Amy Galbraith

Life has been pretty crazy these days with a 3-month old. While I feel like I’ve settled into the rhythm of taking care of a baby, it certainly isn’t easy, or predictable. So we thought, why not take a flight? Haha, I’m sure most new parents don’t feel this way but with Banks’ grandma and […]

A Winter Adventure | Olympic National Park

Thursday, December 22, 2016 Amy Galbraith

A few weeks ago I had the luxury to just get away for a few days to Olympic National Park. David was due to be out of town for three days for a business trip so I thought, “Why not take a trip of my own?” I poured over many ideas – a cabin in […]

North Cascades Backpacking | Wing Lake

Wednesday, September 7, 2016 Amy Galbraith

This summer’s bookings have been really interesting. While I was super busy in June and July and I’m fully booked in September, August was just a bit slower. This was the complete opposite of last year! That being said, it made for a few really nice weekends off where we were able to spend time […]

Friday, May 1, 2015 Amy Galbraith

I know, I know. Winter is over. On sunny days like this though, I can’t seem to stop thinking about winter adventures. See for me, summer is my working season. I can barely find the time to leave my computer screen, let alone go on a hike or make it to a happy hour with […]
