Appreciating Teams and Shared Time

A guest post by Tracy

Randy and Autumn, a black and tan labrador retriever guide dog, navigate a rocky mountain slab.

As we wrap up a busy weekend I found myself happily reflecting on our day yesterday, sharing a simple hike with lovely lake views with many members of our Peru team (Randy, me, Greg, Jenn, Michelle, Robbie, Brent, George and Loren) and a member of our Kili team, Maureen, who was unable to join us last year.

A view from a mountain ledge looks down upon the expansive Lake Winipesaukee showing some of the numerous  islands and boats enjoying the bright blue sky day!

What I was reminded of as we hiked through beautiful woods and rock slabs overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee was how each person we traveled with seems to fill a different void whether it is Randy as story teller and connector, Greg as instigator encouraging us all to reach for some amazing new experience, or any number of others offering words of support, humor, fun and love along the trail. This is what it is like to bond with people over shared challenges

and this is why our group means so much to me. Certainly those who were unable to join us were sorely missed and we look forward to planning our next adventure.

Speaking of…

It seems unfathomable to me that it has not even been a year since most of us shared the challenge, beauty, and thrills of our Peru adventure and so I’d like to reshare a post that was put up a few weeks after our return. Please enjoy this great blog of our Peruvian adventures!
