Selkirk International Loop
It is pretty rare that I travel with people. But when traveling to Canada for the first time with dogs I felt it was necessary to bring along a “Canadian”. So I invited my dad on the road trip as we circled the Selkirk Mountain Range while traveling around Washington State, Canada and Idaho, our home state. Continue reading
Margaritas while in Texas, yes, please!
People sometimes laugh at the speed I travel. Continue reading
Snow Creek Falls
Last year we had one of the worst fire seasons in the Inland Northwest. Idaho was on fire. Canada was on fire. Montana was on fire. The season was paralleling the summer of 1910. Not that I was around then, but the fire season was so notorious that it went down in history as one of the most devastating natural disasters the Northwest has ever endured. Continue reading
Boomer and Jovi on the road
Sometimes I get flack for traveling with my dogs. Although I try my best to find activities to include them in my travels it does not always pan out. And when it doesn’t I have to rely on a little local help at the destinations we visit. And when I say local help, I mean local dog care facilities. Continue reading
Paws For Beer’s May Beer Round Up
Hey, so… We’ve been MIA for about a month.
No, we didn’t die. Or pass out from drinking too much beer. Continue reading
Heyburn State Park

Which brings us to Heyburn State Park in Idaho. Hayburn is unique as it was once slated to be a national park but it was later decided to make it Idaho’s first state park. Continue reading
Beer with a view. Post Falls Brewery in Post Falls Idaho
So I realized something. I decided to change my beer blog posts up, by changing to a monthly post, which I did for December…. and then I missed January… and then February and now we are to the middle of March.
Apparently, I need a personal assistant, not that I can afford to pay one, but someone who can hold me accountable for the things I say and then make me do them.
For now, I’ll have to hold myself accountable. So here it goes, March’s Monthly Beer Round Up. Continue reading

80 degrees + two black dogs + one overweight white girl = a bad combination Continue reading
Painted Hills Oregon
When I lost my job last year my travels were slightly hindered. I still ventured out, but locally. By the end of September, I became gainfully employed again and decided to celebrate this occasion by taking one last mad dash trip before returning to adult responsibilities. Continue reading
Payette River Scenic Byway Idaho
My home state Idaho is known for many things. We grow potatoes. Our college football team plays on blue Smurf Turf. Our state’s gem is the Star Garnet, found only in two places in the world, in Idaho and Africa. We are home to the desert but also stellar mountain ranges such as the Sawtooths and Selkirks. We are also home to an array of scenic byways, such as the Payette River Scenic Byway. Continue reading
