Last Look: The Brother/Sister Selfie


This photo was taken about six months after the Appalachian Trail hike, on a trip to Little Corn Island in Nicaragua. I had joked with Cristina that the brother/sister adventure selfie was becoming a bit of a genre, but seriously: in looking through my photos, I found almost too many to choose from. Trekking in Bryce Canyon; Big Bend in the backcountry; snorkeling in Curaçao; a return to the Appalachian Trail in fall. The latest selfie: kayaking on the Tomales Bay in California, just last week.
