These pictures from August would have appeared on the September, 2013 main page.

Mike's last hurrah for their time in Boise was a second ascent
of Idaho's highest point, Borah Peak, with his buddy Ed. Meanwhile,
in Southeast Wyoming, the rest of us were doing a little rock climbing.

Alissa flew out to Idaho in the 8th to help with their big move
to Wyoming. Mike & Kara settled into the neighborhood, and
Alissa set out to establishing a routine of stealing away from their house
with our infant grandson in her clutches at any & every opportunity.

Family & friends visited them at their new digs,
and eventually their lives began to settle down briefly,
if only for ten minutes! The gardens were in terminal
bloom, and the fruit was on the trees, as summer faded.

Mike, Kara & Bentley (and Edgar!) went camping with his
original family nearly immediately after arriving in Cheyenne.
We just hung out at home, sky-watching at night, eating
apple pie baked from our own home-grown apples.

Eli and I were able to go climbing one last time
before he left Wyoming for his first sojourn away from home.
We climbed a four-pitch route on Walt's Wall, and one more route
higher on the Hatbox. We met riggers for Vertical Dance when we left.

KEWL, baby...
Future's so bright,

Alissa had a busy month! Next she flew to Austin,
to assist Josh & Brianna in their move to a new 'hood.
Every day I received cellphone images of familiar ground.

One morning I was driving home from work and, curiously,
I saw a parachutist landing in one of the newer neighborhoods
around our house. There was also a lot of rain this month, as well
as Eli's 19th birthday shindigs. I worked many nights this month...

How do you think this person got here???
