2011 in Pictures…

2011 isn’t technically over yet, but it’s been a great year with a lot of fun work-related travel. For anyone who’s curious, I give you…the year in pictures.

I started the year like this…so I knew it was going to be a good one.  Forgive the mirror shot, but it was late and the photo was an afterthought.  Roller Disco NYE FTW.

I went to a clown camp hosted by the infamous Wavy Gravy.  Some people might find this odd, but the thing that really got to me was sleeping outside in a teepee.  That’s an experience I won’t hurry to repeat. I woke up several times to spiders crawling on me or the sleeping bag.
