In my past two posts I hinted at my knee bothering me while in the Smokies and Asheville. In my family we've learned not to mess with knees. When we got home I called the orthopedic practice and was there in a matter of days.

The European adventure begins! We were off on our longest trip ever – and one we planned for over a year!
Check out our adventures as we hiked around Arches National Park!
