You just never know

We hiked the last half of The Loop trail with a couple from Texas. They have summited the highest peak in 49/50 States. Only Denali in Alaska eludes them. 
Same trail (The Loop), different mood with the clouds. Thankful it wasn’t raining. 
First time seeing this. Yesterday on the drive from The Loop to Lake McDonald Lodge. 

The couple we hiked the final two miles with yesterday have hiked the highest summits in 49 of 50 States. Not only that, they have also summited the highest peak in Africa and in Russia. 

Djuan has done the highest peak on all 7 continents. His Everest credit is from a HALO jump. HALO stands for High Altitude Low Opening.

The conversations they had about specific far-off villages, trails, people and camp sites was astounding. 

You just never know what a stranger knows that you know, that almost no one else in the world knows.
