little philthecarl


found this at my parents house today...would love to hear who you think Corban looks like. Mostly we hear "a little of both." I would probably agree with that.

it looks easy, but it was really difficult

more colors




the last section of the superior hiking trail






Emily and I were able to sneak out for a little day hike on the northern most section of the SHT. On this section of trail is the highest elevation of the SHT. After we reached the summit, we stopped to make some dinner and have a hot cup of coffee. Then, the rain started. We had a nice two hour hike back though the rain and the colors as daylight faded into darkness.

5th wedding anniversary celebrated by going to Grand Marais to bike, camp, and enjoy the colors!





So Emily was bigtime and agreed to going on a bike ride with me...she did awesome (and I think she even had fun :-) After 8 miles and a lot of mud, we both enjoyed our dinner out at the Angry Trout.

the boy is definitely a product of his mother...
