About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Maybe the craziest thing I have ever seen with my own eyes.

Anne and I were sitting on the balcony of the Airbnb in Silverthorn, CO, looking at the mountain in front of us that is so tall it has a lot above the tree line. No roads go near it. Then we saw a white dot moving in front of it. It was a parasailer! They must have hiked up all day to jump off at sunset. Then another joined!

It seemed crazy. I was texting our pal Kari that we were watching two people commit suicide right in front of us (well, dozens of miles away). They then went below the treeline between them and us, but there was no news the next morning of deaths in the area.

Crazy! Two pics and then one of the mountain in general.
