Last year before Keltin and I went to Colorado we picked him up a set of trekking poles at REI. Well, I loved them too. That Colorado altitude gets to me when I can really only train at Texas altitude. The trekking poles were really useful at the Great Sand Dunes National Park. I took

The weekend before the shelter-in-place order came in Keltin and I practiced some social distancing at the local botanic garden for a little photo shoot. Despite thinking I was going to freeze these were so much fun to take and Keltin got to show off his photography skills! I loved getting to feel like a
