    Climbing Boy Scout Rocks

    We enjoyed a healthy number of climbs on the Mt. Diablo rocks. Unfortunately, I didn’t get too many photos, save this one of Andrew all dressed up to play Ultimate.

  • Coastal Stargazing

    Coastal Stargazing

    We drove up the coast and stargazed on the beach. Remarkably the skies were clear and we spotted and counted the moons of Jupiter, hunted the Andromeda Galaxy, and reviled in the massive glory of the Orion Nebula.

    Massages in Yosemite

    The massages were Great, they made sleeping on rocks and pine cones all the more bearable.
