Yosemite Adventures

My family and I live about 45 minutes outside the entrance to Yosemite National Park so you can be sure that there are some awesome hikes not too far from our house.  In the summertime it can get up 105 degrees so when one of those days rolled around we decided it was time to head up.  We packed up my backpack with the essentials, water, an orange and some bananas, a pocket knife, and Natures Bakery bars.

The Lewis Creek Trail is right above the city of Oakhurst and is the perfect hike for a family wanting to spend a couple of hours in nature.  The trailhead starts you off with a warning to be on the lookout for mountain lions, and before you even have time to say "yikes" you are maneuvering your way around logs to cross the creek. The hike then leads you along the creek in the shade of the trees and crosses you over about 3 really cool bridges.  The hike is easy enough to sing "the ants go marching" which no hike should be without.  About 1.7 miles down you will come across some potholes above a waterfall which is the perfect spot for pictures, rest, and food.  Then follow the path and you are standing underneath the waterfall.  You forget all about the steps you just took when your foot are in the water of melted snow.

The reason Nature Bakery bars is perfect for a hike is that they fit great in a backpack, they are easy to eat, my son thinks they are a treat, and they give you just the right amount of energy to turn around and do it all again. So grab your backpack, throw in some bars and get out there and explore.

Should you go to the big chain store in the city, or stop by the small bicycle shop down the road? What kind of bike do you need? There are a lot of questions that need answering before you buy your first bicycle, and you'd probably prefer to already be on your way, pedaling down the road by...


Free-skree

It’s a pretty funny story actually, I was watching ”The Line,” a local Reno/Tahoe TV show, when a commercial for Arcade Belts caught my eye. The commercial resinated with me because there were some girls trying to snowboard down a sand hill. Anyone (and not really anyone else) who has ever ridden a mountain bike down a steep sand hill understands the rare opportunity of such a steep gravel/sand face. It is like powder skiing or snowboarding, but better. The commercial looked geographically close to home, so I decided to take...



Staying Gluten Free While Traveling

The biggest challenge to life on the road is maintaining a healthy diet. With travel almost always comes a lack of time, knowledge, and means to find/prepare healthy food options. On top of that, as a gluten-free athlete, finding healthy and balanced options without wheat can be even trickier. Below are three of the top tips and tricks I've learned over the years to stay fueled and healthy while living out of cars, airplanes, and hotel rooms. Please keep in mind these tips are only for those...
