A Chance Meeting with Mont Blanc
by Robert Neustifter
Fresh off a failed relationship, Ronald is leaving Portland for a hiking trip to Mont Blanc. On the other side of the country, in Orlando, a woman named Deanne is busy making her own preparations for a trip to exactly the same place.
Ronald and Deanne would find themselves among men and women meeting for the first time in France as members of a group trip. Talking to Deanne from the initial stages of the trip, Ronald finds himself intrigued and fascinated by Deannes extraordinary zeal for life.
The trip acquires a new dimension then, for Ronald, who has hardly been out of his own country his entire life. There is, on the one hand, the spectacular challenge of Mont Blanc, and on the other hand, the interesting woman who is starting to captivate him.
Would Mont Blanc then be more than what it is for the two who were mere strangers days ago?
