Blue Lake (In Black & White)

We recently decided that it was finally time again for a hike. So we got the kids in the car, a few friends to join us, and drove up to Blue Lake (close to Cascade, ID). Blue Lake really is a special place. Even though it is still very close to “civilization” you feel like […]

All is bright (and warm!)

Every year, Purple Sage Farms in Middleton, ID do a winter solstice celebration with a potluck dinner and a big bonfire. My family and I went there in 2017 and had such a great time that it was clear we’d return again this year. They had an impressively large pile of wood ready to be […]

A look down

I recently started a little photography project to capture things from a different angle. What I noticed is that “looking down” lets you see a lot of things you otherwise miss. We are typically busy scanning the area around us to see what’s happening so we don’t look at what is right at our feet.
