Today, once again following in my family's footsteps, I hiked up to Gem Lake and then on to Balanced Rock. The hike to Gem climbs all the way, pretty rough, but the lake area is worth it. The trail to Balanced Rock is unimproved but less strenous, I though, at least on the way out.
Tony told me the other day that he will be moving out this Friday. He's going to one of the other dorms. He just got a TV and DVD player, too.
Two more weeks and I'm on my way back through the flat plains of Nebraska to the rolling hills of Iowa. Where's the time gone?
