A flurry of firsts: Our trip to Salt Lake City was our first trip since we came back from Ecuador. Our first trip in a while that we did not have the initial flight cancelled. Our first granddaughters, Karli and Asia, graduated from high school. And the first time we came to Salt Lake City and were not able to see Mom, Frieda, or Doc and Rebecca. So while some of our firsts made us jubilant and proud, others made us feel a void. All in all, though, it was a great visit to SLC. We spent time visiting family and friends and did a great hike up American Fork Canyon to Pine Hollow.
We now head off to drive to Eugene, Oregon, to visit Jill and Shea. Along the way, we plan on stopping at multiple national park sites that we have never been to before. It will be fun to add some more firsts to add to our growing list of firsts.
