We just arrived in Prescott, AZ after a road trip of almost 2000 miles. Our Subaru Forester (which we love) faithfully hummed from Chicago to St Louis to Oklahoma City to Albuquerque to Prescott. Along the way we had side trips to Santa Fe and through the Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert in eastern Arizona. It was a really good trip.
In St Louis, we visited Ron's brother Tim, his wife Emily, and their son Kyle. (Sorry we missed Logan, who is hard at work in a summer program at the University of Minnesota, sandwiched in between his internship at the University of Wisconsin.) It was lovely to catch up with the "St Louis Baileys", see the newly renovated kitchen, play cornhole in the back yard, and share a yummy dinner. Thanks for being such great hosts!
