A young man, a photograph, and the insatiable urge to explore
Lynn Downey first fell for Fred Loring when she discovered a photo of him amongst some archives in a small town in Arizona. Her crush led her on a journey across the American West, and through time.
On this episode, she shares her story. It's a story about exploration -- about what drives us leave the comfort of home and venture into the unknown -- and about the timeless thirst for discovery.
The story was reported and produced by Diane Hope, a journalist based in Flagstaff, AZ.
