On our Pacific Northwest trip in 2011, we drove through Napa Valley on our way to Lassen Volcanic National Park, and thought it would be a crime not to stop by a winery. We chose Regusci Winery for its location on the less-crowded Silverado trail, its history (originally established in 1878 as the Grigbsy-Occidental Winery), and of course for its house corgi Trixie (our travel mates Emily and Jake are corgi-owners themselves). In addition to tasting some great wine, we highly enjoyed our personal tour of the cellars and winery (nothing like wine poured straight out of the barrel!), and stayed afterwards for a picnic with sandwiches from the Soda Canyon Store just down the highway.

We rode the father/daughter team of Stroker (Nick) and Mystique (Neil).10.09.21 : Took a walk around the earthworks at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park on the way to our camping weekend in Ohio’s Hocking Hills. These geometric ceremonial mounds were built by native cultures that lived in the area from about 200 BCE through 500 CE. The park is made up of six separate sites located around Chillicothe, Ohio.07.29.21 : The final big hike of our summer trip was Pennsylvania Mountain near Fairplay, Colorado. It’s not a well-known peak, but it’s a 13er and provides great views of the continental divide and surrounding mountain ranges in a quick (but steep) 5 mile round trip.07.21.21 : At 9 miles, our hike down the Grand Canyon’s North Kaibab Trail was our longest and by far the most strenuous hike of the summer. We went as far as Roaring Springs, 4.5 miles and 3,200 feet below the rim.
