I’m writing this update from Utah, where I’ve been winter hiking at Zion National Forest with my husband, spotting wildlife, taking photos, and catching up on some reading. I hope your winter has been as enjoyable. This month I have five posts for you. I also discussed last months’ billboard article on the Zero Hour podcast, which you can listen to here.
I’m still rethinking the design of this monthly roundup post. If you have suggestions for what would make it more useful for you, please let me know. For now, here are some posts of mine. Thanks, as always, for reading.
