A few weeks ago my friend Shannon (and her friend, Leslie) came for a visit. They are on a five week roadtrip. Mostly they are climbing, but they also get in a little hiking and a whole lot of having fun.
Shannon and I met years ago (1995) when my boyfriend at the time was working at an outdoor school in Georgia. I went out to visit him and met Shannon. I thought she was super great, but didn’t see her again except for briefly at a wedding the following summer.
Flash forward to early 2002. I am walking around a store in Bozeman and hear my name. (You can see where this is going…) It was Shannon. We had both just moved to Boz Angeles and started hanging out. We became great friends. Then she moved away…
We met up in Jackson a few winters ago and skied, but it’s been too long and I miss her. So, I was very excited that she and Leslie (who is also great!) spent a couple nights with us.
We hung out here, went for a hike and went out to dinner. That’s more than I’ve done in a long time.
You can check out a bunch of pictures on their blog (scroll down a bit to see the Livingston visit).
