Well to say it bluntly, I never thought Nic and I would be friend at first. You’re probably thinking, “that’s an odd way to start a blog post,” and I agree. I can’t help but laugh to myself as I write that first sentence because it’s probably an unexpected first impression. Similar to your possible impression of this post, my first impression of Nic was one where I just didn’t know what to expect. Fortunately we somehow got to know each other a few months into my second year of college. We slowly became friends and two years later we’ve grown to know each other a lot better and made a lot of adventurous memories together. I appreciate Nic’s down to earth perspective on things along with his genuine personality when you get to know him. Not only do I find him hilarious in many regards but he’s also great to have on hikes when you want to be thinking about anything other than the burning in your lungs. I truly appreciate the process of Nic and I becoming friends and look forward to hanging out over the upcoming years.
I hope you enjoy the photos from a hike at Troll Falls. Next week I’ll be sharing the other part with photos of Caleb and some things I kind of like about him! I’m planning to adjust how long I’m writing these so that I can be more consistent and sustainable in my posting frequency.
