We even took our time with breakfast, swapping life stories as we feasted on coffee and hot mongo soup. The guard at the ranger station came by and shared his breakfast with us. I listened to Daisy’s and Jay’s stories and was in awe of what they lived through. These two are tough survivors and not just because they got through a traverse.
