One of life's greatest joys is seeing old friends in new places. I don't know if that sentence is true, but it sounds pretty inspirational, and in this case, it is true. We met Matt in Alaska several years ago and had many an adventure with him there. A few weeks ago he was back in his hometown of Spokane, having just returned from a year in Africa.
He and his traveling buddy, Kim, drove over and did a three-day hike in Glacier Park, and as they were coming and going, we nabbed them for evenings together hearing about each of their plans to return to different parts of Africa and watching a slideshow of our times with Matt in Alaska.
Here we are the morning they left. Jason had already gone to work.
