One of the best things about my cross-country road trip was catching up with family and friends who I am unable to see very often due to long distances separating us. In Idaho I was able to spend a weekend with a high school friend of mine and his girlfriend. In the past 3 years we have spent more time together in foreign states and countries than in our home-state of Pennsylvania. It’s always a pleasure to experience new places with old friends.

After travelling through Oregon on my own, a weekend of relaxation where I could fall back into guest-mode was a luxury. Our day-trip to the Owyhee Canyonlands was highlighted by a visit to the stunning Leslie Gulch, and a scramble up a nearby butte when our original plan to hike The Three Fingers was halted by an impassable muddy road (and a brief scare with a stuck vehicle which I helped to dig out with a screw-driver). On Easter Sunday we visited the church of nature within Boise National Forest, hiking up switchbacks to gain a view of the mountains in the distance.

    Oh c’mon!
    I thought you were supposed to lead some archeological site in PA and not to keep traveling all the time. Some old, grounded people are jelaous here!

      Then OK, you may keep posting them 😉

        I’m still catching up from my trip during the Spring. After this week I’ll be posting about my summer work and current adventures.
