Colorado River, Grand Canyon, 2002.
He will always be "Bug" to me. (The story behind that nick-name might embarrass him as a now grown teenager, so I will resist from telling it in a public setting like this).
Wonderland Trail, Mt. Rainier, 2000. If you look closely on the hillside behind him there is a black bear headed downhill.
He has always been a trooper when it has come to his older siblings. (We dressed him up in doll clothes when he was a baby).
He is smart and a hard worker. I am so impressed with the grit he has shown in is tough classes this year.
He is a great person to have around when there is work to be done.
He cleans up pretty well too. (In truth I just had to put this picture in here because it is cute and it amazes me how much he has grown the last few years).
He has a bit of an attitude though that keeps you on your toes.
