I'm excited for this summer

I want to have a good summer with Alene so bad, mostly for the sake of building good traditions and and bond with her. We talked a few weeks ago about how many actual weekends we have open for things like camping and outdoorsy stuff. We figured from mid april until the end of July we have 14 weekends. Our goal was to be camping (or on some sort of vacation/trip) at least 7 of those.

To kick things off and do a little "warm up", we are heading down to the San Rafael Swell this weekend. We plan on finding a campsite somewhere along the Swell, then hiking Little Wild Horse canyone as well as Goblin Valley. We're also going to just explore the swell around our campsite. It should be a lot of fun.

We have a trip planned to visit the Grand Staircase (Escalante) and see the place Alene spent two months on an archaology dig. I am REALLY looking forward to that one. We'll likely do that one in May.

We also have a possible trip planned to visit Alene's brother (Brian) and his wife and kids in Washington.

In between (and after) we hope to get out more than we did last Summer.
