Just before Christmas, my friend Jose and I spent a few days hiking Mesa de Anguila.  Near the end of the trip, Jose sat down to rest and found a camera--a really nice camera.  So, we took a selfie and dropped the camera off at the visitor's center, hoping the story would end well.

It did.  In fact, better than expected.

A couple days ago, I got a wonderful thank you card from Amy G., a national park volunteer.  It included two prints of the picture.  Well Amy, your card was very appreciated by both Jose and me, and it made an awesome trip even better.

Happy Trails!
G

Great story
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.
