Because of my old career as a flight attendant (and now, because of my husband's job), I've been able to run, hike, photograph, eat, sleep and make friends in some very cool places. I've lived in many different places throughout the US & Canada: big cities, tiny towns & national parks/forests.

I have a long list of places I still want to go. Pretty much everywhere. I can't begin to figure how many cities I've been to, so I won't! Here are nationally recognized places I've been. Very vivid memories of some.. like at the US First Bank of America (in PA). I had just finished running and I was eating lunch, hanging out with a squirrel, next to a really old, really cool building. Don't you love those snapshots of life!?
