“We met on a cross country bicycle trip 3 years ago (shout out to ) and have been looking for our next adventure ever since. When we told people we were planning on hiking the trail almost everyone said the same thing: By the end of it you’ll either never want to talk to each other again, or you’ll be getting married. I think our summit photo speaks for itself. ”
