Iceland seems to attract CC alumni; this is the second chance encounter we’ve run about CC Tigers crossing paths unexpectedly in this part of the world.

On a July trip to Iceland, John Shackleford ’70 was on a tour bus to the Gullfoss waterfall, located in the canyon of the Hvítá River. “The guide asked us each to introduce ourselves and say where we were from,” he says. That’s how he met CC alumnus Michael Manco-Johnson ’67 and his wife Marilyn.

“Michael and I both learned we were from Colorado. I told him I went to Colorado College and he said he did too! A new friendship was born!”
