Matt, Maren, Bryden and Gavin's homepage

Welcome! At one time, this was a page to keep our relatives and friends up to date on what we were doing, and how Bryden and Gavin had been growing. It was a chance to share some family pictures and stories with the people we don't get to see in person as often as we'd like, and an opportunity to post some information about some of the various climbs, hikes, and other adventures we'd done. Obviously, this site has gone stale, and I haven't updated anything here for ages. More recent photos can be found on my facebook pages, so check there for anything since, um, 2009!

If you're visiting this site because of a trip report I've posted here, and you'd like more info, feel free to email me - I love to talk about our trips, and I'd be happy to provide you with any route details, or recommendations I can remember!
