Two Special Trees

Fifteen years ago Susie and a group of bicycle advocates met at the Thunderhead ranch in Wyoming and launched an organization that would strengthen and grow these groups with training, networking and resources. She became the Thunderhead Alliance’s first director. Now known as the Alliance for Biking and Walking, it has grown from 12 to 170 member organizations.
Last month there was a reunion meeting at the Thunderhead Ranch and many of the original founders were there. As part of the meeting they planted the quaking aspen that I had talked to the current director (and Susie’s good friend) Jeff Miller about. But they planted two of them!
Jeff wrote and told me that many of her old friends were there and stories were told and tears were shed.
These two trees will grow and strengthen just as Susie’s beloved Alliance does.
