Made it to the top of the cinder cone trail in the northeast part of Lassen National Park! It was 700ft up climbing cinder (basically like a dune).

I am sitting at my new desk in McCone that has windows! I can see Memorial Glade and the big library from my window. I can hear the bells ring from the clock tower! I can feel fresh ocean breezes!

Romy 7.23.2010

Doing some late night research since I didn't do any of it all day. Instead I was planning the trip to Norway with Andrew and reserving train tickets.


Jenn 7.23.2010

We trimmed, pruned, and swept in the backyard garden this morning. When we came back from vacation, we noticed somebody (probably our annoying landlord) took all of the low-hanging lemons from the Meyer lemon tree that hangs into our backyard. So we got out the step ladder and picked some of the higher up lemons while they were ripe. They're huge!

We are enshrouded by stream which blocked out the sun near the hot springs in Yellowstone National Park. It was cold and actually snowed there (in July) the next day!

We had dinner and a few beers at the Snake River Brewery in Jackson Hole, WY. Very good beer, but Nicole had a few messages she wanted to give to the master brewer on how to improve some of them!


Jenn 7.5.2010

I am smiling because I found a whole wall with the crazy animal shirts that I like, in Jackson hole, WY! But they were tooooo expensive, so I didn't get any, only a picture!

Grand Tetons NP

Near the middle of our hike up Cascade Canyon in the Grand Tetons National Park. We camped that night in the south fork, which goes to Hurricane Pass. We wanted to do the Teton Crest Trail, but there was too much snow, so we only camped one night in the high mountains.
