Send me some Denver hiking recommendations, please!

Well, we did it! We made it to Denver! Between visiting the Statue of Liberty, camping in the Adirondacks, biking through Germany, backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, and moving across the country, it's been an absolutely insane 6 weeks.

Christmas in Ohio

For our final trip of 2011, we headed to Ohio over the holiday break to visit some of my mom’s side of the family.
