12 months ago, record snow fall, plummeting temperatures and non operative cameras. A perfect storm of everything that could go wrong and did.

This year, it is different.

We go back expecting hurdles that we need to traverse and find they are not there. Of course. Isn’t that always the way?

But I am thankful that every time we arrive, we are greeted with love. The moment we announce we are coming, we have volunteers.

No one has forgotten

No one has moved on.

Ryan matters.

Because we will never give up, neither will they.
