San Francisco (December, 2006) – This had been planned as a family trip but when Jon got sick I ended up going by myself.

NWT (August, 2006) – No real post, but we went on a ten day road trip through the NWT. This was my first time traveling this far north and I fell in love with the northern landscape.
