It's been a long time, Update in photos

This will be a glossed over version of the last two months. There is just way too much to tell. Here we go...

We stopped in Arches NP on our way to Colorado. It was pretty cool... as expected a bunch of Arches.

We then spent most of the past two months in Crestone with Robin Blankenship at Earth Knack. The first month we worked with her 6 days a week, the second month only 3 days a week.
