2021 – Hoping for a better year!

I’m glad you’re here! When I can’t travel and explore in person, revisiting my favorite places virtually is the next best thing, and that’s what I offer up here… travel with me to some of the most beautiful places in the world via the Internet. It’s not perfect, but it’s what has sustained me for the last year!

So far, 2021 has offered up more opportunity for traveling, exploring, and hiking to make up for lost time last year. Thus far in 2021 I’ve revisited Eastern/Central Oregon and had a lovely time walking among the giants at Redwoods National and State Parks. I have plans to backpack in the Eastern Sierra this summer, and also to revisit Utah this fall. There will be several shorter trips as well at Mt. Rainier, the Olympic Peninsula, North Cascades National Park, and anything else that strikes my fancy!

As always, yoga will be a part of my travels and I’m learning Qigong and love bringing that into Mother Nature as well. When home, I’m still teaching yoga at the YMCA and am adding backyard yoga classes as the weather and my schedule allow. 

Happy Trails!!!!

      Thanks Dennis! I’m so fortunate that I’ve been able to bounce back from eight knee surgeries and still keep hiking and backpacking and snow-shoeing.

        My time has come. TTT MPFL and LPFL (Maybe) Dr. Robert A. Teitge, MD Feb 2nd. Strange my knees have been feeling good this winter. My wife thinks it is trying to escape. I never had a problem with frequent dislocation. Just really bad pain for long periods of sitting and exercise induced pain. Hoping for the best. I know you had doubts when you went on good hikes before. How are they now?

      I’ve heard good things about Dr. Teitge 🙂 I had TTT and lateral release, but no MPFL or LPFL. The rehab was long and hard, but it gave me my life back and I’m doing things now that I never thought I’d be able to do. Just played racquetball this morning, and could NEVER have done that before. While you’re in rehab, make a list of the things that you want to do that would have been too painful before, and focus on those. It’ll help you get through all those PT appointments and give you some good goals to focus on. Good luck!
