Leavenworth bouldering
The real climbers, sizing up real problems. Nick and Christian were the first ones to take us climbing outside; it was awesome to get to go to Leavenworth with them.

Leaving Leavenworth bouldering
Hiking out. Washington is beautiful!

Mike and Gus

While back on the east coast, I visited New York. My friend Brennan put me up, and after driving all the way from Mike's wedding in Virginia, I was out like a light.

Michaela at Sheetz
I got to bring Michaela back to PA during this trip! She was thoroughly astounded by Sheetz, as we all are.

End of the surf day in Manotoloking
August 2019: We had a combined bachelor/bachelorette party for Josh and Ciara in New Jersey! As I was driving my rental car from Philly, Collin called to ask if I'd make it in time for a sundown surf session. I went straight to the beach. I took this photo after our session. One of my favorite memories from 2019!!

Boys on the Beach
Bachelors, partying.
