Sawtooth Wilderness

October 11-14, 2018 Our trip to the Sawtooths was amazing for so many reasons. First of all, neither of us had ever heard of the Sawtooths until about a year ago. A climber/photographer I follow on Instragram posted a photo from there and I couldn’t believe this spectacular place existed within driving distance from Brian’s […]

It’s been 8 years since we’ve lived in the USA, and much longer than that since either of us has lived on the west coast near our family. Two years in Mexico, four in Brazil, and two in Bulgaria. What an amazing time it’s been. Back in 2010, we started this whole international teaching thing […]
