May 16, 2005: After many cookie sales, Brownie Troop 71 heads to Sea World San Diego. Two honorary Brownies, the younger siblings Alan and Isabella, tagged along. An even younger sibling, Nikki, also put in an appearance.

July 14-18, 2005: We went up to Yosemite for our friends' wedding, and stuck around for a bit of hiking afterwards. We stayed in the Yosemite Bug Lodge and Hostel outside the park (very nice), had a bit of trouble with the Yosemite traffic in the valley, and, in general, had a great time.

October 2-7, 2005: We took a trip to Zion. We stayed the first night at the Driftwood Lodge (a family tradition), and camped the rest of the time in the South Campground (site 69). It was very nice, slightly chilly at night and warm but not sweltering during the day. The shuttlebus system sure beats the traffic jams of a decade ago! Nina managed to conquer her fear of heights enough to make it up to Canyon Overlook this time, and Alan was able to keep up even on the Echo Canyon hike. Maria's cold kept her from doing all the walks, but she recovered enough to see Echo Canyon with the family.
