We ended up taking the Ice House trail to the 8,859-foot summit and hiked nearly 12 miles there and back.

The Wedding(s)

I attended two weddings in the past year, and I was the maid of honor at both of them. I planned two bachelorette parties—one that never happened and the other where I sustained head trauma and ended up in the ER.
