We got engaged on January 7, 2012, in Big Bear Lake, CA. After hiking Mt. Whitney, Jenn had sworn off hiking (allegedly). However, in late December, she caved and agreed to go on an allegedly short and manageable hike in Julian. Unfortunately, that hike turned out to be a 3 hour tromp in snow and mud, in forty degree weather, and she again swore off hiking. Yet, when they were up in Big Bear shortly thereafter, she again agreed to go hiking (there must be some kind of addiction mechanism at play here). When they got to the top of the mountain, Kyle got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him. In Mandarin. That would be, 你願意嫁給我嗎？(Ni3 yuan4 yi4 jia4 gei3 wo3 ma5?) Of course, she said yes.
