In seventh grade, the dream took shape. A geography teacher painted Africa’s tallest mountain, and the surrounding lands, in such tantalizing hues that young Nick Follger was entranced. He devoured books about the place. Years marched past. Adulthood, military service, family, career. And still, the mountain called.
One day on the Oregon Coast, Follger and his wife talked about their lives. They talked about closing their South Hill photography studio, moving the photography business into their home and defining goals for the years ahead.
