Photo of the Week

This week’s top photo came from my first canyoneering adventure in Minnow Canyon. My husband was the official photographer, and I couldn’t resist sneaking in this pic of him on the job! You can see more pictures from the trip (including some of me hanging off the side of a canyon wall) on Facebook.

    You’ve done it again, Kristi! I don’t know how you find such great stuff from all over the web, but you manage to do it every week. :) The post on using Twitter to find guest post opportunities was especially awesome. I just set up a couple new streams in my Hootsuite based on those recommendations. Thank you, and have a fantastic weekend!
