I won’t lie to you, it feels strange to finally be writing this post. I look back on our previous years (2015, 2016, and even 2018 in particular) and I feel like those are completely different people. That’s of course not to say that we don’t care about the national parks anymore, but the latter half of 2018 and essentially the entirety of 2019 was, to say the least, very rough. We had originally had plans to go to Rocky Mountain for Labor Day 2018, but then Brady had to have emergency surgery, which set us back in more ways than one. Then 2019 was just kind of a dumpster fire of a year (even our first attempt at a national park trip, which wasn’t even until THE END OF AUGUST, was effectively an unmitigated disaster) so I was determined to have a good time in Pinnacles for the big 3-0 and get us back on track.
