|We didn't get a picture of both of us here, because Jo was melting into a puddle when we took this photo.|
While there, we met a local who shared stories with us and whose son we'd once met while we were on a TuGuNu Hiking Club mission. . . it's a very small world. Mr. Maddy, it was nice to meet you!

The next morning we awoke and went to a reception held in the Belle Point park. Mayor Blankenship was there and presented us with a certificate, and everyone who came was excited for us and eager to hear stories. Thanks to everyone who braved the blustery weather to come out and say hi to us. Bart was especially happy to see his cousin Kenna and her husband Jimmy - Kenna has been a fixture in Bart's life for a long time and it was nice for me to finally meet them. Special thanks to Rick Moorefield who helped arrange the event, and to Jessica Lilly, who continues to follow our story (and who I also finally got to meet in person!).
Hinton, it was a wonderful time. Thanks for being a Great Eastern Trail town!
