I took the week leading up to my 26th birthday to camp/backpack through the Pacific Northwest with my sister Danelle and best friend Laura. We planned the trip around the August 21st solar eclipse. The path of totality ran across the US from the northwest to the southeast, so we wanted a front row seat to watch the moon totally eclipse the sun in Oregon.
This past weekend was pretty special – my mom came to visit for the long President’s Day weekend. It’d been almost a year since her last trek to the Mile Square City, so I arranged an agenda mixed with Hoboken classics and NYC staples.
