Just wrapped up a week doing what I refer to as "The Circle." A string of trails, scenic roads and highways that provide all of the necessities for my lifestyle. From jagged 14,000 peaks that stem from the valley floor to unpopulated stretches of coastline "The Circle" just keeps on giving. I've probably done it 100 times but it was awesome to show Liz how to do it this time. The highlight was finding a couple new places to camp for free and the lowlight was getting stung on the tongue by two bees who happened to call the inside of my beer can home. Through it all, I continue to feel fortunate to be traveling in my "backyard" again.
