I awoke this morning to a dull, gray sky and raindrops on my window. I thought to myself today is the day to tell the love story. We need a bright spot in the day.
John joined us in March of 2010. He hiked up the mountain expecting to find adventure and finish hiking the 900 miles in the park.
Bonnie joined us in May of 2010. She was excited about a new job in the great outdoors. This opportunity would give her a chance to spend her time off hiking and exploring the mountain.
They quickly realized how much they loved hiking together, plus Bonnie was the only one fast enough to keep up with John on the trail.
They decided to return for a second season on LeConte crew. This would give them more time to spend in this great national park we call home. John was so excited for Bonnie to see Gregory Bald and the Flame Azaleas. He planned to take her up there to see the beauty. They went for a hike this past Saturday, which by the way was the peak. While on the mountain, John asked Bonnie to marry him.
This photo was taken by John Northrup.

In case you are wondering, she said YES!!!!
