Greetings from St. Petersburg, Russia.  This has been one of the two days without rain on the trip and we are psyched!  We really had a great tour of the city with our local guide Tatiana.  We visited St. Issac’s cathedral, Peter and Paul’s cathedral and fortress, and the Church of our Savior on Spilled Blood.

Tomorrow we’ll be touring the Hermitage museum and then taking an evening canal tour for the last day of the trip.

Here’s a photo from St Issac’s.

Janet & Peter, Random says 4 hooves up for the summit tomorrow!  Resting and relaxing at home, Gretchen says “I could have done the 1st 17 miles with you!”  We are hoping the weather will be perfect and that you have a great climb to the top.  Cheers!!!
