Mountains make for great camping, and great camping makes for one happy girl. The last few months have not gone as planned. First I had to leave the high altitude mountain trek I was so excited about, and then, because Kevin was still sick, we basically spent the last two months in a room, in hot and humid cities, with obnoxious men, constant noise, and absolutely nothing to enjoy. But now, life is back to being perfect because I’m finally back in the mountains.
