It’s a dangerous business, Frodo…

Allison and I are doing quite a bit of hiking and backpacking this summer, so we figured this would be a good way to keep track of everything (and let our family know we haven’t been eaten by bears).  Planned locations for the next ~40 days – in roughly chronological order – include:

Thunderhead Mountain, TN

Driving through Kansas

Arches National Park, UT

Zion National Park, UT

Bryce Canyon National Park, UT

Capitol Reef National Park, UT

Grand Teton National Park, WY

Yellowstone National Park, WY

Glacier National Park, MT

Horn Creek Family Camp, CO

Horn Peak, CO

So then. If you’re easily bored by descriptions of rocks, trees, and bodies of water, then this likely won’t interest you. Our 3-day trip in the Smoky Mountains begins this Saturday with Allison’s parents and brothers. We plan to see Thunderhead Mountain, do some off-trail hiking, and spend 2 nights in primitive shelters along the trail. The rest of the fun starts in about 2 weeks, after we’ve had time to move into our new place in Milwaukee.

In the meantime, I have a biochem final to study for.
