A Few of my Favorite Things

A menagerie of summertime play packed into a few short weeks means less time for silly pursuits like blogging. I'm completely okay with this situation.

In lieu of attempting the overwhelming task of blogging it all, here is a little photo-essay of the last few weeks. It's possible I'll get up a short report with a few details about Western States, but no promises.

My garden blooms!

Emerald Bay from the Rubicon Trail

Running the Rubicon

Running the Rubicon with Sarah!

Runner's barbecue, chez moi: Amber and me.

Pitch #2, Northwest Books, Lembert Dome, Tuolumne Meadows

Andrew on the sharp end.

Nevada Falls

The Panorama Trail

Yosemite Falls from the Four Mile Trail

Yosemite bike path fun

Andrew graduates from paramedic school. He worked hard for that diploma, and I am so proud!

Hangin' with Meghan at Michigan Bluff

With bad-ass runner Jamie heading into Foresthill

Jamie and I exit the rafts after crossing the river. Jamie looked great all day, and finished in 23:15!


  1. Wow! Love some of your favorite things. Likewise I've been falling behind on the blogging too because of summertime play.

  2. Lovely photos. What a great way to catch us up. Looks like you're having a great summer! Lisa and I were thinking about you and Jamie a lot on Saturday, hoping you were having fun. Sure looks like it from the pictures. (And thanks for flying the WRC colors. Didn't really expect that!) Unexpected bonus seeing you and Meghan.

  3. Great things to have as favorites!

  4. It was such a joy to run with you on Rubicon trail! and share in delicious food too! Looks like Yosemite was amazing, makes me want to get back there. Please give my congratulations to Andrew.

  5. What lovely photos! I am also super behind in blogging and am planning a picture portfolio to do the telling of the past couple weeks. Beautiful photos Gretchen! :)

  6. Great photos.
