About Dan and Hannah

I want to invite you to make my blog on the hiking lives of Dan and Hannah (as well as bonus adventures in their lives) a part of your weekly “must” reading on the Internet.

Each Saturday I will post an account of our active life. What started out as a series of pieces about hiking in the Southwest has morphed into stories about our hiking life, especially with their newfound love of the Appalachian Trail (AT).

  1. Stumbled across your blog… Six hrs later, im still here!

    I work for American Airlines, love to travel, and have really enjoyed reading your posts…. I think it is awesome that you and your wife are so active… You two have def made the rounds here in the US.

    Could you tell me where the watefall is located on the home page? I thought I might stumble across it, but never did.

    Thank you-

    • Multnomah Falls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge some 35 miles east of Portland, OR. Very very popular at the falls, but if you go inland just a little bit, there are fantastic falls on the Multnomah Falls/Wakeena Falls loop. We just returned from that area but on the Washington side of the Gorge. Hamilton Mountain (blog in about four weeks) is terrific as well, though not the amazing drop in the waterfalls as Multnomah.

  2. Congrats on your successful Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk🖒❤ thank you for all that you do to support research and individuals whose lives have been touched by this disease. Looking forward to checking out your blog on this rainy day in Packwood Washington!! Sending Love to you and Hannah!

  3. Just stumbled on your blog post. Am enjoying catching up with your travels. Discovered your post on Sea Ranch (and it seems we have a friend in common too). We spend our time between NoVa and Sea Ranch and various parts in between. Sounds like we have a ways to go to catch up with you two.

  4. Hannah. I just stumbled onto this blog. I went to Moss Lake camp with you back in the 60s! Mary (Randi) Swander. I roomed with Suzie Nelson in Lodge one year. I remember that you had a very long braid, had a kid sister in the kids section of camp and that you were the best swimmer I have ever seen. If you remember me, please get in touch. Over the years, you have been in my dreams, more than once. I live in Northern California if you are ever out this way. What a hoot to see photos of you. So you SO VERY happy. Congratulations

    • Wow! Mary, how cool! Hannah’s husband of nearly 48 years, Dan, here. Email Hannah at hannahrothermel@gmail.com. I would so like to learn more about Hannah before I knew here! Best swimmer! That sounds about right. We went back to Moss Lake for a mini-reunion two years ago. When I met Hannah, she had pigtails so time. So amazingly cute!

  5. Aloha, Dan & Hannah – Came across your blog via the Moss Lake facebook page and enjoyed your Moss Lake hike post. I was a Moss Lake Camper in the 60s and early 70s. However, it was this story that I wanted to share after reading your recently posted Eleanor Roosevelt quote. https://www2.gwu.edu/~erpapers/myday/displaydoc.cfm?_y=1960&_f=md004825
    ER’s granddaughter, Sally, was a camper who was injured in a fall from a horse, a very unfortunate accident. Eleanor Roosevelt wrote about it in her diary which I came across online.

    • Wow! So thoughtful and insightful was our Eleanor. We can learn so much when tragedy strikes. My wife Hannah was on the trail ride when Sally fell. I have updated my blog by including your response with the link to the article (I left out your name but would gladly include it if you would like). Thanks for connecting.

      • Thanks for the response Dan and the connection Heather had to Sally. Happy to have the post shared but can leave my name off. Thanks. Best to you!
