Thanks to Jenna Johnson for the kick to publish more of my work! Here's an Anhinga from today's adventure.
I met Nick Manning back in Hawaii when we were both Team Leaders for the Hawaii Youth Conservation Corps in 2010. Nick and I forged a life long friendship that summer and keep in close touch to this day. I'm constantly inspired by his adventures and journeys. Nick and his partner Emily Bretl are at it again, heading off on a trip to India with some of their students from Seattle. I myself have learned tons of valuable life lessons from Nick, and would like to think that these kids just might too! If you've got the time, check out their mission here, and if you've got the funds, consider throwing a couple bucks at them. It'll be good for the world!
