This was a busy year of travel. I went back to Hilo in February. Betty Rosenberg, my colleague who works at Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation, met me in Hilo and we visited Onomea and the Hawaii Botanical Garden. We also got to see my mom play with the Hui Okinawa Taiko Group at the Waimea Cherry Blossom Festival.

Back in New Mexico, I went with UNM Getaway Adventures to Salinas National Monument. And I also visited a fabulous Los Ranchos de Albuquerque house on the Landscape Architects Tour.

In July I went to Oregon and saw my friend Brandi and her children, and also my friend Julia and her terrific dog, Sam.
