Journey home was easy, but long, punctuated by a catch up in the Missoula Airport with Kelly and a longer visit at San Francisco Airport with my brother, who I had not seen since his return from volunteering disaster relief in Nepal immediately following the earthquake there. Hours in between filled with doing my favorite in-flight activity . . . photographing!
Lasting impressions . . . wonderful trip, fabulous food and wine, best-ever group of traveling companions — you definitely know how well you'll get along after 24+ hours of rain and huddling by the campsite toilet — gorgeous landscape! Sure there were things I would change up . . . like making sure everyone got to hear all of what Kevin had to share while we were paddling, but all-in-all a great adventure!
Thank you, all! ! !
