I’ve been on leave for the past week to the mainland, spending most of my time in Nebraska. Right now I’m in Colorado with my parents on a mini-vacation. My dad and I hiked up a steep canyon to a place called Hanging Lake. It was so beautiful and such a good workout! This morning I went running on a trail that runs right in the canyon next to a river. It was beautiful … I wish I could run that every day ;)

It’s been so nice spending time with my family. I’ve been able to spend a lot of time with my baby nephews, too. The next time I see them after I leave they will both probably be all grown up! Hopefully I’ll get to make it out here before they grow up too much.
