Year in Review 2021

Here’s to 2021!  It was a bit better than 2020, though the pandemic still raged though vaccines gave us a glimpse of and hope for the future.  In some ways, 2021 felt circular; for Andy and I it started and ended with New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve summits of Percy Peaks in Nash Stream Forest near Stark—it seems to have become a tradition. The biggest event though, was that Cora came into our lives.  We adopted the (relatively) mellow and very cute, small brown dog—maybe a border collie, Australian shepherd mix—in mid April.  She quickly won over numerous fans for her softness and cuddle-ability.  Work continued on the house, trips to the mountains and the desert were made. Worked a few NOLS courses in the canyon country and one in the Winds. Rocks were climbed and the ups and downs rolled on.
