Last weekend, Ben and I set off with my parent’s wheelers for an epic blueberry expedition. We headed up to our favorite blueberry patches in the woods.

Eklutna: kayaking, camping, wheeling, hiking.

Ben and I just got back from an awesome weekend out at Eklutna Lake. We were remarking how we haven’t been at an established campground in over 4 years and that it was nice hanging out at a place with a picnic table and firepit. That being said, you won’t find us getting to comfortable… […]
