Years in Truckee Area
Upper Peninsula of Michigan
Why the Truckee Area?
Sunshine! And although Truckee gets a lot of snow, it’s not that cold – if you want to experience “cold”, visit Michigan. I came for the sunshine, and stayed because of the strong sense of community, beautiful scenery, changing seasons, and extensive trails. I can’t imagine a more spectacular place to raise my twins.
To me, living a big life means spending as much time in our gorgeous surroundings as possible. In order to balance it all, that might mean waking up a little early or staying out a little late, and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone a bit – but when I experience that insane sunrise or sunset from the trail, it’s all worth it. I strive to instill the same love and appreciation for the outdoors in my children that my parents provided me with. Here’s my blog: www.jpchronicles.com. And you can find me on group runs with our local running club: www.donnerpartymountainrunners.com
