HAPPY 42ND ANNIVERSARY TODAY FOR Alice, my wonderful wife and I.  She has been a faithful comrade throughout life.  Whether hiking in Nepal, Colorado, Arizona or Bali she has been a trooper navigating canyons, volcanoes, and mountains! Married life, in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Ontario, Ohio and Bangladesh! I thank God for giving me such a wonderful companion.  I met her on September 18, 1966 in beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and married her 1,000 days later!!

On a 4 day hike in Nepal from near Pokhara up to Poon Hill and back.

Celebrating our 40th anniversary!

Day 44

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO MY SWEETHEART!  We celebrated our first Valentine’s Day together in 1967.  This photo was taken in Pokhara, Nepal.  We had just returned from a 4 day trek in the Annapurna range, climbing to Poon Hill and back. We had to do a visa run and used this opportunity to go to Nepal and celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.

Day 242

SANTOSHI, my adopted Nepali daughter.  She did a great job of making us feel at home.  She works in the office of the “Nepal EnvironmentalTreks and Expedition, LTD.  They arranged for our memorable trekking experience in the foothills of the Himalayas.  These are photos she took just recently when she visited Pokhara, the place we stayed at before and after our hiking.
