I've been excited about staying in a lookout tower for ten years...and this year, I finally made it happen.
A short time after Lucie was born last September, Ted called me from work and said, “Here are the dates for a four day weekend in February, I want you to have fun finding somewhere to go, just the three … Continue reading →

I love Ben's shots of Oregon landscapes. Gorgeous Mt. Hood and and eerie sky...
 
This evening was incredible. I was running and slipping on the ridge here trying to get in a couple shots before the approaching dawn light washed the stars out. Let me tell you- down booties don't give the best traction in icy snow! laughing 

About 15 minutes later this big Lenticular was gone. To my memory- this is the first time in the 4 yrs I've been shooting stars that I've seen a Lenticular cloud at night. What made it particularly special, is the light from Government Camp below shone directly onto it, lighting it up like the screen on a drive in movie theater. 
Light pollution is both a terrible and fascinating thing. 

Props to Hilleberg the Tentmaker for the performance of their Tarra tent. That thing is a bomb shelter. 

In about 2 hours, I'll be in a G+ Hangout with +Royce Bair , +Brad Goldpaint , +Jack Fusco , +Mike Berenson and +David Kingham . We'll be talking all about night photography. Come on and join us if you're in the mood. Details below:

“What are we going to drink?” he asked.
“You idiot,” the boss replied. “We’ll drink mineral water.”

Story
Tagline
Native Oregonian. Landscape Architect. Local Leader. World Traveler.
Introduction
Writer, Photographer, Traveler at twoOregonians
Bragging rights
Eighth generation Oregonian (pre-Oregon Trail!). Knew at age 14 I wanted to become a Landscape Architect. Co-founded Sustainable Food for Thought & The PDX Food Swap. My (not-so-secret-anymore!) passion is orchestrating adventures around the globe. I spent 2012 visiting 25 countries and territories with my husband. We hiked in Patagonia, crossed the Atlantic by ship, drove Lamborghinis in Italy, felt at home in bombed-out Beirut, volunteered on the shores of the Indian Ocean in South Africa, made it to Zanzibar, traipsed through Southeast Asia, and landed in New Zealand for a grand finale!

I've stayed in luxury accommodations on five continents, and The Arrow sits high atop my list of favorites. Tim has created a collection of absolutely beautiful spaces. Our spotless room featured classy and functional design innovations. Peaceful garden grounds and a path through the cozy woodlands made stepping out for a walk to downtown Arrowtown a pure pleasure. Zipping wifi, warming welcome drinks, breakfast delivered magically via the "secret cupboard" - all details cleverly designed and artfully executed. If you wonder why I'm gushing: I'm a landscape architect and a tech-savvy traveler. Finding a paradise like this anywhere in the world - and especially in my adopted favorite country of New Zealand - is worth sharing about. I hope to return someday in the not-too-distant future...
