The road trip has started. After a long haul from Seattle down to Portland, across Oregon/Idaho and into Wyoming, we made it to the Tetons. It's incredible here. The Tetons shoot out of the ground like nothing we have seen before. Because of the way they were formed (earthquakes), there are no foothills. It makes their height and jagged edges even more spectacular.
We settled into a great campsite and set out to explore the area. We've been able to do some of our advo-cation to spread the word about the 1,000,000,000 people that are chronically hungry in the world. We got eye-catching campaign shirts that have people looking very closely. And we've encountered a lot of people.
We had initially wanted to be a bit more assertive – ultra-actively engaging people – but it's been tough to work up the nerve to disrupt the contemplative vibe of other hikers. Needless-to-say, though, the shirts are doing a lot of good. It doesn't hurt that we're both wearing them either! I think people are intrigued when they see us coming with the same message confronting them. Twice.
Off to enjoy the park and then up to Yellowstone.
