After I had finished my summer research project and Ross finished his summer classes in Madison, we were fortunate enough to have another great family vacation. This time we went to Nova Scotia, Canada. Passports are required to travel into Canada now. We all remembered ours, but Ross’ had expired. Fortunately, they allowed him on the plane, into Canada, and, after the week long trip, back into the United States. I bet if we had been going anywhere but Canada, the airline/customs people would not have let him board the plane.

I had a great time visiting a friend going to school at Hopkins School of Medicine.

BBC News photo collection showing previously unknown cache of papers related to Anne Frank, one of the most famous victims of the Holocaust. The documents note that her family tried to have her emigrate to the United States, but was unable to obtain a visa because of the difficulty of traveling from Amsterdam to an American Consul in Portugal, Spain, Free France, or Switzerland during the Nazi occupation of Europe.

We just got back from a ski trip to Whistler, British Columbia. The snow was incredible! I’ve never skied powder that was so deep and fresh as I did at Whistler. Numerous people that I talked to on the slopes said that this was the best snow that they’ve had in a long time.
Here are some of my favorite photos from this trip:

Photos of my travels in the spring and summer of 2006:
Spring break: Chicago
I had never really been in Chicago except passing through or at the airport. We walked around the city, saw the musical “Wicked,” and saw the many attractions (museums, aquarium, navy pier).
Summer: Moab, Utah
Immediately after graduation we drove to Utah to see Canyon Country. The United States has an incredibly diverse landscape.
Summer: Immokalee, Florida
I spent one week volunteering at a food pantry in Florida.
Summer: Beartooth Mountains, Montana
My dad and I, and a friend, his dad, and his brother drove to Montana for some backpacking. On the way we stopped at Mount Rushmore and Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. The trip was very memorable.
Thanks for the memories!

I have been practicing rolling a kayak in Elkhart Lake and have gotten very good at the standard sweep or screw roll. (See A Kayak Rolling Primer)
