Lake Michigan: unsalted.

Vacation is over, successfully completing #94. JH survived 2 1/2 weeks with my family, and I daresay he enjoyed it. After hiking the Cottonwood Trail to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Somebody needs a haircut.

Thrill Capital of the Southeast!!!!!

After my last day at Dr. Cathey's, Ashley and I decided to tear it up at Carowinds, completing #87. It was a rainy, gray day, but better for us- incredibly short lines and bearable temperatures. Here we are in front of The Duck, with the Intimidator behind us.We rode the Intimidator three times, and it was FABULOUS.

Vacation Time

I've accomplished quite a bit in the last month, but seeing as I didn't bring my USB cable up north, pictures and updates will have to wait. Michigan, as usual, is gorgeous. More importantly, it's an average of 15 degrees cooler than it is back home. We leave Sunday- expect a slew of posts afterwards!
