Heart Camp Video

Heart Camp Video

I’ve been keeping things from this place and that’s not good. Life has been busy, work has been wonderful and the craziest time of year, Summer, is right around the corner. So I’m going to do a few updates here with current work and ongoing projects. To start, here’s a video I shot and edited […]


Recreational Vessel

Recreational Vessel

  Summer hangs there like a basket, waiting to be loaded full of memories and feelings. We paddled the Columbia River Slough, the Willamette and the Siltcoos Rivers and we talked about time and birds and life. We explored the hills and rivers near the Middle Fork of the John Day and fell in love with a meadow. […]


Spring Break Run

Spring Break Run

A few weeks ago during the boys’ Spring Break, after days of snowy Oregon activity, I finally had the chance to get out for a run and found my new favorite place: the Salmon River Trail which hugs and cradles and sleeps along a spectacularly wild river. all content © Tim LaBarge 2014


Million bottle milestone

Million bottle milestone

Somewhere in the Northwest, temporarily tucked in a little black and yellow box with eleven of its buddies, is Hopworks bottle number one million which slid off the tiny bottling line late last week. I stopped by the brewery yesterday to shoot the new-and-improved 22-ounce Abominable Winter Ale bottle as it came off that same […]


The Leo and Jack Trail

The Leo and Jack Trail

When you become the proud owner of two explorers, it’s best to just sit back and observe. I try to direct the flow, to keep up, but in the end I wind up watching. They dig, throw, study, pick, prod, poke, run, swim, whittle, balance, heave, crunch, crank, grind, balance, jump, leap, run, sprint, crawl, […]


Traveling the Backroads of Oregon

Traveling the Backroads of Oregon

It’s one of those places where you announce, though quietly so as to not disturb the silence: I could live here. That rarely happens to me these days. But as I drove backroads chasing motorcycle riders across the northeast corner of Oregon, it did cross my lips. The peace, the beauty, the elk, the rivers, […]


Seasonally Defective

Seasonally Defective

I checked the temperature on my phone when I finished my run: 90 degrees. Strange. It was 33 degrees when I started. At one point during the run up Council Crest, the highest point in Portland at 1,071 feet , I did catch myself daydreaming about Summer. But it was certainly not 90 degrees on […]


Snapshots from the trail

Snapshots from the trail

I still carry my little Canon camera each time I run, I’ve simply neglected to post images here. This little camera has brought me more joy than I predicted. I am usually excited to head out for run on some trail or another, but coming home with an image or two lets me relive it […]


Kiddie Cross

When you line up for any kind of race in Bend, Ore., there’s a good chance you’ll find an Olympian or ex-Olympian lining up nearby. That place is loaded with champions. Even the fans appear to be in better shape than the runners or cyclists who are doing the racing. So I wasn’t surprised to […]
