Fresh Fig Parfait + The Maryhill Freeride

Posted Sep 16 2012 10:34am
Good Morning and Happy Sunday!

Fresh Figs are in season and I would highly recommend that you go and get yourself some today!



I made a simple Fresh Fig Parfait by layering a little greek yogurt, some fresh fig slices, a sprinkling of homemade granola (more about that later) and a drizzle of honey.




I honestly think this might have been one the best things I have ever eaten and it is a beautiful to look at as well.


I had this lovely breakfast before heading out the door on a little road trip with my son Emmet.
I am writing you from Maryhill, Washington, where Emmet and I are spending the weekend.  Emmet is participating in the Maryhill Freeride Longboarding Event and I am having a good time walking the course, taking pictures and spending time with Emmet.

The Maryhill Loops Road is basically out in no where's land that just happens to have a very cool 2.5 mile road.



The Maryhill Loops Road was an experimental road in south central  Washington , United States, built by  Good Roads  promoter  Samuel Hill  with the help of  engineer  and  landscape architect   Samuel C. Lancaster , climbing the  Columbia Hills  from the  Columbia River  and  Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway  to his planned  Quaker   utopian community  at  Maryhill, Washington . Built in 1911 as the first  asphalt  road in the state, and bypassed by the present  U.S. Route 97  after World War II, the road achieved low  grades  with  horseshoe curves . The design became the model for the  Figure-Eight Loops  on the  Historic Columbia River Highway  in  Oregon , designed by Lancaster several years later. [1]  The road is now owned by the  Maryhill Museum of Art .


Emmet took 16 runs down that hill yesterday and I walk/ran it 3 times myself.
Emmet is actually up and ready to go again.  I am hoping to do the hill 4 times myself and Emmet want so get in another 16!

With that I am off because I am informed that it starts "soon!" In other words, get off the computer and let's head over to Maryhill!

Have a great rest of your weekend everyone!
