Bryce Canyon National Park,
Desolation Trail to the lookout over Salt Lake Valley,
featuring three of the coolest people you'll ever meet;
and the Subway canyon in Zion National Park,
featuring twelve more of the aforementioned coolest people you'll ever meet.
Also, I received an Honorable Mention from the Q2 Writers of the Future contest to go along with my Semi-finalist entry from Q4 of last year (Semi-finalist is in the top 1%-ish; Honorable Mention is in the top 10%-ish), and submitted another story for the Q3 contest.
Submitted a modified version of my Master's Thesis to the Utah Arts Contest in the Short Story Collection category.
Received feedback from my alpha readers on my current novel, and have now begun ROUND 2 of revisions on said novel.
So, all in all, it's been a fun time. There are many more to come.
