Mia and Andrew have safely returned from their hike through Kings Canyon in Sequoia National Park. Hurricane Irene prevented them from flying home over the weekend. The intrepid couple were undeterred and decided to rent a car and drive back to NJ from Cleveland. Much of New Jersey is still without power, along with New York and New England. Mia and Andrew, along with Andrew's long-time friend, Levi, had a terrific time in the wilderness of Northern California. Lisa, Regi and Kai joined them for one leg of the hike then they all returned to San Francisco, Lisa's home, for a visit. Mia begins her last semester of Nurse Practitioner training next week. The getaway trip was just what she needed to recharge her batteries for the tough few months ahead.
