The Places I’ve Been … June 2013 Edition

I’ve been neglecting this blog for over a month for two reasons:

1. I helped my Aspie son with a 70-page college geology term paper (serving as typist, scribe, interpreter, cheerleader, and organizational consultant), and

2. Hubby and I took a two-week road trip through six states (Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and Oregon), three national parks (Yellowstone in WY, Grand Tetons in WY, and Craters of the Moon in ID), two national monuments (Fossil Butte in WY and Hagerman Fossil Beds in ID), and my monthly clinical trial visit in Denver.

The summary: we had a great trip, I had another clean PET-CT scan, AND the kid earned a 3.7 out of 4.0! I intend to write some entries about traveling with lung cancer, geology, and the sites I was privileged to see … as soon as I recover from vacation.

In the meantime, here are some previews of coming attractions:
