We were about to start our first backpacking trip together in Mammoth, CA. James had surprised Bekah with her sister, Theresa, and her family, at the trailhead. While taking a family photo James let Bekah know that his last conversation with her Dad was to ask him for "her hand." Then Bekah started ugly crying and then they were engaged!!! After she said yes, celebrations started by drinking Jay's favorite scotch that James packed in a flask and a bottle of champagne. They then remembered they were only at the trailhead and still had to hike 6 miles up a mountain with their friends Zach and Brittany! Having a day/night of no cell service in the mountains was so special to soak up the engagement and all the emotions.
