What I Did on My Summer Vacation

With tomorrow being the first day of fall, and the fact that I haven't posted practically all summer, I thought I'd let you in on what I did during my summer vacation. (Vacation?! Ha!)

our new space
relaxed on our awesome new deck

Hickman Bridge
road-tripped to Capitol Reef, this time with friends

the photographer
went on a nerdy photo outing with my favorite nerdy photo pal

shaved asparagus pizza
learned to love asparagus, thanks to this delish pizza

huckleberry sodas
remembered how much I love ice cream sodas, which then became a staple at Pie Sundays

sang and hippie-danced in the mountains at Targhee Fest

spent a week in Boise National Forest

snapped up my dad's extra season ticket at several Ogden Raptors games, thanks Dad!

spent a week in Yellowstone, the Tetons, and surrounding forests

juniperus scopulorum
hiked to Jardine Juniper, after much too long of a hiatus

finally developed a love for beer!

Bennett's Rock Rapid
got soaked on the Main Fork of the Payette on our first whitewater rafting trip

kayaked, camped, and lazed about for days at Payette Lake

cotton candy
trekked many a day into the field for the Forest Service

took our 3rd trip to Capitol Reef this year, and picked the most delicious apples

saw Mono Lake's Tufa Towers through my own lens

I discovered how awesome asparagus is on pizza this summer too! My fiance thought I was weird when I suggested it, but it's SOOOO yummy.

That's very exciting. Thank you for sharing this with us about your summer vacation. Traveling is one of my passion and desire. Cooking is my hobby. And during summer I do these a lot and it always gave me a good feeling having reaching out for what I would like to experience. I know that you too, have experience it. Anyway, I enjoyed dropping by to your blog. I hope you can also do some green stuff/activities on your next vacation. I guarantee it's also fun to do it with friends. =)
