Where Have I Been?

Hey all! Just wanted to give a quick update to the blog. I had the goal to produce articles and videos each week, but I haven’t lived up to that…

So what’s up with that? Well, to say that I’ve been busy would be an understatement. I’ve had time to get out and adventure, thank goodness, but it was for me, and not necessarily for this site. I needed the outside time to help keep myself focused on a major change in my life…

I’m moving to Colorado!

(Near Boulder)

Organizing this move has taken up much of the energy that would have otherwise gone to this blog, and I’m sorry for that. However, I’m really excited for the opportunities that this move will also bring to the Adventure Logbook. I can’t wait to share my NEW experiences in a NEW state. I hope to be back in a rhythm of blogging as soon as I’m settled in. That could be as soon as the beginning of August, but more realistically some time in September. If you know Colorado, feel free to leave adventure ideas or places to explore and share in the comments. Thank you for your patience and see you all soon!

Lake Champlain is Completely Frozen

On the news this week, I learned that Lake Champlain is officially completely frozen over! This is something that doesn’t happen every winter. In fact this is the first time since 2015 that this has happened. Last time, I was pretty bummed that I didn’t take the opportunity to walk out in the middle of the frozen lake. So, to avoid that same regret this time around, we decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and walk onto the ice near Oakledge Park in Burlington, VT.

That is a big frozen lake!

There were a number of other groups on the ice as well. People were taking pictures, going for bike rides, catching fish, and overall enjoying the spectacle of the State’s largest lake being frozen. My favorite thought was remembering summer days spent swimming at Oakledge, and comparing that mental image to how far from shore we had walked. Luckily, we were able to take some pictures and videos all while staying quite dry.

Lake Champlain certainly seems locked in the icy grip of winter, but surely that wont last for TOO much longer. Spring will come soon!
