In January of 1978 I decided to take a trip to Bryce Canyon, in Utah as I had always wanted to see it in the winter. While there, I met a nice German couple at a canyon overlook and talked with them for a while.

Two days later, after driving over 550 miles to the south rim of the Grand Canyon I pulled into an overlook and was startled to find the same couple.

Considering the distance involved, the number of scenic opportunities along the ways, and the timing of it, I was pretty impressed by the long odds.
