This summer's travels took us first to Escalante, Utah, for a week of canyoneering. Despite it being the week before Memorial Day, we had almost perfect solitude and did not encounter any other people on all but one of our hikes.
After Utah, we spent two weeks in Aspen, CO where Thomas attended the Physics Center. Because it was so early in the year and too much snow still on the ground, it was impossible to climb any high mountains.
We drove back to Rolla and had two short days before leaving for another three weeks in Germany where we got to spend time with family, see old friends, rock climb, and explore some historic cities.
