Big Bend is a special place
« on: December 03, 2013, 10:29:57 PM »
so I got engaged at the top of Casa Grande on friday!

huge thanks to the following people (if by some chance you might be lurking):

- the two German guys also on CG that morning.  At first I was bummed there was someone else up there, but we ended up being happy there was someone else there to take our picture.  Good luck on bagging the rest of the 7K peaks in BB.
- the random woman and her son at RGV store who bought us wine glasses and a magnet as a gift/congratulations.

apologies to anyone who might have been annoyed by my very excited gf/fiance who was frantically trying to make phone calls from the pay phone!
