This was a vacation of a lifetime. I read, mountain biked, ate, ran, and enjoyed. Words cannot truly communicate what this trip meant to me. It was the culmination of everything good. While I was there I realized what my life has been up this point-trying to please myself. This year, I am going to make an attempt to change that, to give to others without expectations of return.
So, now that I'm done philosophizing and being eloquent, here are some photographs that really capture the beauty of the trip.

Campfire on the beach with hot dogs and everything nice.
Joy, pure joy.
