We finally made our way out to Las Vegas, and we drove out to the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area for a tour and some walking.
Also while we were in Vegas, we went out to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, which was one of the most unique and beautiful places I've ever seen.
While in Pennsylvania for my cousin's wedding, we took advantage of a free morning to take a quick hike at Rocky Ridge Park.
Also in Pennsylvania, we checked out Longwood Gardens.
And closer to home, we finally checked out Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge.
We finished the year by going back to Longwood Gardens for the holiday light show.
