Looking Back

Another year of travels, with finishing up a year in Peru, and then heading back to the US.

Started the year off with trips in the north part of Peru. That included beach towns around Mancora, in the Piura and Tumbes departments. We also saw some historic archeological sites in Trujillo and Chiclayo, in the Lambayeque and La Libertad departments. And finally we went into the highland rainforest areas around Chachapoyas in the Cajamarca and Amazonas departments.

We also went south of Lima to check out the jungles around Puerto Maldonado, some historic sites, the Peruvian second city of Arequipa, a National Park and coastline, and saw some Nazca lines.

Then it was finally time to head back to the US. After visiting some family in Iowa, it was back to Colorado for hiking. And I ended up getting a job with Charter Spectrum here in Denver.

Now looking forward to good things in 2023 (including a new nephew).


Things that happened in 2022:

Big Travels

Not so many physical challenges like ultra-runs this year, but more mental and emotional ones this year. We had a cancer battle (Pru), some viral infections (Ben), some surgeries, and some deaths in the family. The renters and rental company we had for the year we were gone, weren't the easiest to work with, but the house survived. And when we got back, we planted another 100+ flowers in the yard (I guess that was a physical challenge for the back). I tried to keep up with some young college kids in beach volleyball, that was a work out too.
