Happy 58th birthday brother Howard

Glacier Park hikes
College buddy Howard Doran hiking to Grinnell Glacier last Summer, 2017. We almost walked into the Big Horn Sheep you see here.

About four miles into our hike, Howard is doing what Howard does – make people smile as he takes a photo of the entire hiking party.

Howard reminds me of a Disney Cast Member – assertively friendly.

We had barely begun our hike when we were confronted by wildlife.

To say the place is beautiful is to understate the reality.

Happy 60th 58th birthday brother Howard.

This post happened because i wanted to text a (single, specific) photo to Howard yesterday for his birthday (i don’t like to use Facebook for birthday wishes).

Looking for that specific photo, i got caught up in many other nice photos of Howard in action.

Long story longer, i posted 15 photos on the Facebook feed and tagged Howard creating a much different message than the typical Facebook-provided-happy-birthday-wish (so uninspiring, to me).

From that, i decided to use 13 of them here today.

True story.
