sylvantechie and I arrived home today, about twelve hours later than we had planned. Long story short: the hotel we were staying at the night before last didn't give us our lovely 4 am wake up call, so we missed our flight. We rebooked for a red-eye through last night. It wasn't all bad. To pass the day yesterday, we rented a car and drove up to Crater Lake, so that was a nice little bonus to our travels. But now we're exhausted. Sylvantechie is already in bed, and I'm heading there ASAP. I'll report more on our trip later. We had great fun, we visited with family, we hiked, we saw critters, we wore ourselves out, I got injured (during the whitewater kayaking part: bad muscle bruise from being dashed against a rock. It's mostly healed, a lovely mottled yellow and red thing, but it sucked for the two days that I couldn't walk.), we saw much cool stuff. We took lots of pictures, which we will share. But now, bed.
