Korouoma Gorge Frozen Waterfall Hike


The Korouoma gorge was formed over a million years ago and in the winter a chain of fourteen frozen waterfall form. It is an easy drive from Posio, about thirty minutes. Probably about 90 minutes from Rovaniemi, if you are coming from that direction. Directions, this is the road to take to the trail head: Saukkovaarantie, 97815 Posio, Finland From…

Visiting beautiful North Carolina


Just about a year ago my childhood friend (and maker) Andrew came and spent 10 day helping me build N241VP. It was such a blast working together and it only seemed fair to make a visit out to his home in North Carolina. First, it is a haul to get there from Steamboat, so we opted to break the flight…

Snowy Muddy Rabbit Hike


Hiking with the OTHG group, we carpooled up to the small parking lot before loading up on clothes for the 28 degree start of the hike across the snow covered ground. Near the turn around the sun had done a pretty good job melting the snow and we were treated to very different views in the return hike.

Checking Out Rabbits Ears Up Close and Personal


Having flown over Rabbitr Ears a number of times it was time to do it from the ground. The drive from Steamboat takes you to a parking lot at the trailhead to lead you up the mountain. The trail is actually a jeep trail and we did come across a couple driving down as we hiked up. It is a…

Devil’s Causeway isn’t for the faint of heart

At the rim it got narrower until we reached the Devil’s Causeway. Probably a 2-3 foot wide rocky section that went a…

Private beach hike in Tenacatita


Last year some friends (Mike (SV Shanti) and Damon (SV Gia)) worked for days in hot, humid conditions with biting and stinging insects to clear a trail from “dog” beach in the Tenacatita anchorage over to a private beach on the opposite side of the peninsula. My schedule didn’t allow me check out their work last season so it was…

Post storm visit to Yelepa


September 29th two waves of storms from TS Narda brought flash flooding to the cute town of Yelapa.  The devastation was incredible but even more incredible is the resilience of this town.  We visited just two months later and the town had been cleaned up to the point that you wouldn’t realize anything happened here.  The waterfall in town push…

Time for a quick visit to Isla San Francisco


Wow Nelly, up and moving by 6:30am we made our way down into the mouth of Bahia de La Paz. Winds started calm by within an hour were building as was the wind wave chop. We put up with it for awhile before the loud bangs got on my nerves and we fell off 10 degrees to attempt a better…

Let’s try this one from another direction


Pretty much a carbon copy in regards to weather. I had aspirations to attempt a hike to get as close to where my hike from Ballandra ended as possible. So after breakfast we headed to shore with our hiking shoes and water bottles. As we were putting on our shoes a dinghy from the only other boat in the anchorage…
