David, the girls, and I were out for an evening stroll when we passed a man with bandages wrapped around his leg. Of course I noticed, as it will be 4 weeks tomorrow that I sprained my ankle.
Going in opposite directions, we exchanged greetings and kept walking. His face was familiar, but it wasn’t until M told me who it was that I realized we had passed Mr. Nerison, the man that was attacked by a grizzly on the Lake McDonald Valley Trail in Glacier National Park on June 7th. Wanting to meet the man I had blogged about, I turned around, and called to him.
After introducing myself and telling him of the scolding comment I had received about my post, he spoke to us for awhile. He was very polite and gave us an account of his ordeal. I felt like paparazzi as M snapped photos of him.
He looked great and his recovery is coming right along. It was good to meet him and it turns out he lives just a few blocks away. I wish him a speedy recovery and hope he’ll be hitting the trails again soon!
