    Seven years ago today, Jenny West came out of a long canyoning retirement and joined a trip with Tom and I and the Flatlanders. Since then, hundreds of canyons have been descended and countless friendships have been made and have flourished. Didn't want the day to go by without acknowledging that event, that impacted so many lives.

    Dan was the first to get to know her and eventually she responded with a comment on this page, back in the fall before her re-entry
    Here is the page, some history and the very interesting set of comments

    Congratulations on the anniversary!

    From the link, quoting Jenny:
    Random thoughts.

    There is a mystique - somewhat inviting and somewhat creepy - in the imagination of a "Smiling Cricket"... even Cheshire Cat-like.
    And in the vein of "Firsts", totally agree on that score. Which for me also includes, the first time to experience a place (even when others have been there before). The pleasure of accompanying someone while they experience their own first time (regardless of how many times you've been there/done that). Which contrasts succinctly with LASTS, too. Like when you know it's the last time you will do a thing - or see a place - or be with someone.
