1. Family, of course. This is my (Shon’s) family, but Jenia is equally excited to see them.
2. Cool weather–it’s a mere mid-80s during the day, and a delightfully cool mid-60s at night.
3. Such lovely scenery and sublime hikes within easy distance of, well, most anywhere.
Here are some pictures from today’s activity–a long hike in the White Mountains.
