Click HERE for hundreds of family videos from 2007 to 2020.  In fact, if you go the link then scroll to the bottom the very first video is of PJ crying at the hospital, seconds after being born. Note that videos post 2020 are kept with their original content (web page). 

Please enjoy a few photos from our backpacking trip from Tuolumne Meadows to Reds Meadow in early July 2022. For complete details see the Backpacking section of this website.
