2010 in Review
I learned how to use the reverse lens technique for taking macro photos—my newest obsession!
I finished Ashleigh’s blanket a mere few days before she arrived.
And then the little bit was born at 1lb 1oz on January 21st. Photo from my brother and SIL. It seems like so long ago but yesterday, too.
We took our final trip to Dinner Island WMA with Kathy and Randy.
We took our last trip to Fakahatchee Strand to see the Cranichis mucosa orchid way out in the boonies of the park.
We went to see the ghost orchids for the last time in Little Slough.
We left Florida and moved back to Texas
Had snowball fights in east Texas with friends.
Found Trout Lilies at Tandy Hills.
Made it to Springer Mountain via the 8 mile Approach Trail at Amicalola Falls State Park. Froze our butts off.
Really Froze on Blood Mountain
Made it Smoky Mountain National Park
Ashleigh left us for a better place.
Came home for five days to say goodbye to Ashleigh.
Saw way too many bears in Shenandoah National Park
Told Virginia goodbye after 500+ miles.
Met Meghan and Jesse at the mental halfway point of the Trail.
Breezed through Maryland in about two days.
Was halfway done with the Trail
Managed to survive Pennsylvania
Ate trail food for our 8th wedding anniversary
Celebrated the end of another thru-hiker’s journey.
Summited Katahdin and finished the AT
Saw whales and enjoyed Maine with my mom.
Saw sea turtles in Port Aransas
Had a couple Nature in the City posts
Got a job…for awhile at least.
Played in the woods…err, worked!
Made candied apples with the family
Worked on Thanksgiving. *sucktastic*
Christmas at home, the first in seven years
I didn’t do much in December but work and then come home!
Big year—but it needs some more crafting in there!
Sounds like a pretty great year! How will you top it next year?
Sounds like a complete year to me! I love reading your post. -Chris
