  1. Steven and family,
    i have been away in Europe for 16 days and was eager to find out what is going on with all of you, esp. Steve, of course. i am so impressed and thrilled to have this website! The photos are great and the narrative is fascinating. It is especially meaningful to me to see that you are able to connect my family members as you cross the country! I can’t imagine how you are handling the heat and other conditions. You must be in terrific shape. My kids are “following” you also.
    Steve, thanks so much for the post card from Lower Mesa Falls. Best of everything to all of you. i look forward to seeing you at the end of your trip. cousin Jean
