Five days off. 2,026 air miles. 493 miles on the rental car. Two national park trips. One renewed annual pass. Ten zillion wildflowers. Two sunrises. Two sunsets. One wedding. Two very happy friends. One botanical garden. One mountain bike ride. One tangle with a thorny bush. Eight dollars, one license and one wallet found in parking lots and turned in to various law enforcement authorities. Three tiny bears. 2,292 photos. Three hours downloading. And somewhere in the midst of all the fun, 2,000,000 visitors.
I missed the magic number, but not one drop of excitement.
