MPA in Moab.

There's a tinge of sadness looming in my heart over this year because my cohort is graduating without me! I'm learning to value every drop of time I can get with them.

This is one of those "my-grad-program-is-cooler-than-yours-posts." I'm sorry, but it's probably true. Last year, we had a program retreat at Sundance. This school year, we went to Moab! The last time I set foot in Moab was the weekend I got my mission call—another lifetime, basically.

Moab is a magical place where life on Mars almost becomes true. I love the adobe colored landscape, the awe-inspiring arch formations, and the adventure-is-out-there feel of the place.
^^Llama 1. Somehow our group was spoiled with the best activity schedule: hiking in the morning, rafting during in the hottest hours of the day, not having to clean up camp, and getting an extra Kip-exclusive hike in.
^^ Laughing at Travis' paparazzi attempts. 
^^when camping gives you corn on the cob, use whatever resources you have and make elotes!

the last of summer.

photos that didn't quite make sense to have their own post, 
but are still important.
