2009 Hikes

2009 was a great year for hiking for us, as we did the most hikes since 1999. Included were trips to Utah (Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef National Parks), two trips to the eastern Sierra, and a long trip to the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park in Montana. We also took the boys on their first 3-day backpacking trip, and they did great.
