Happy Valentines Day 2020!

Happy Valentines Day, 2020!

I couldn’t resist revisiting a fun photo of two youngsters!

We are ready to leave Steve’s parents’ home in Omaha! Brand new backpacks, tent, stiff leather hiking boots, and a sense of adventure are ready to go!

We have experienced some grand adventures since our first backpacking trip in the Hunter Fryingpan Wilderness area of Colorado in 1975! It was probably August, we need to review old letters that we exchanged prior to the trip to determine the date. (Phone calls were expensive, no technology existed such as internet, email, texting)! Steve’s Dad made the photo of us with my Kodak Instamatic that used 110 cartridges!  Steve was 21 and I was 19. Just kids!

Fast forward 44 years and here we are at the Maroon Bells area! Not much has changed, right? Same rugged and beautiful mountains!

The second one was 44 years later, July 2019, at Maroon Bells in Colorado after an early evening hike. (The night before we began our 1975 backpacking trip we camped in the Maroon Bells Campground). Let’s see, Steve is 65 and I am 63 in this photo!

A quick trip down memory lane! Happy Valentines Day everyone!
