My older brother, Nick, is visiting Alaska for the summer and helping me take care of the kennel. After years of living on opposite sides of the US or globe, I've been so excited to spend a chunk of time with him. From racing around South America in a mototaxi to working in Ecuador at an upstart tea company called Runa to working with AmeriCorp on land conservation in Boston, Nick has been around the globe. This fall, he will be starting a graduate program at the Yale School of Forestry.
I've been lucky enough to have a stream of family this year from little brother Tom, to mother Katy, to older brother, Nick. Yeah for Team Olson!
