For many reasons, the whole trip was so intimate and so us. One of my faaaaavorite parts of the trip was for sure the landing. Hunter was explaining that because of the plane + flying club his dad owns/is a part of, we would have a rental car waiting for us right when we landed at the airport. I remember seeing a Yukon/SUV of sorts parked near where we were landing and thought oh that'll be perfect for the 4 of us all weekend! Wellllllll imagine my surprise when we parked the plane about 100 yards from the SUV, and I turned my head to see someone driving our actual rental car out to us. A bitchin' purple Mustang convertible. We laughhhhhed, and laughed and laughed when we realized what our rental car was. I tell you what though, we had an absolute blast driving that car around the city, interstates and back roads!
The weekend was this blissful combination of hiking, great food, better beer, hot springs, lovely hotels and just memories that equal perfection. These are the people who make me, me. Spending my 27th birthday with them was something from a dream.
