I forgot to mention yesterday that Naomi turned 17 on the trail! And as you saw from yesterday’s pictures, it was a beautiful birthday that I hope she never forgets! She liked the Ding Dong I had hidden as a surprise birthday cake for her. I also packed some light gifts to surprise her with that I picked up during our travels- a bracelet from Badlands, earrings from Yellowstone and a camping cup from Grand Teton. She has seriously kicked butt on the trail this trip and I couldn’t ask for a better hiking buddy. No doubt her long legs are HARD to keep up with! May all your birthdays be this beautiful sweet Yomi. Love you forever!
