Almost 8 years ago?! Really?! The first time I visited my brother in Colorado I told him I wanted to do something fun and adventurous. I wanted to sky dive, but he picked mountain climbing. Little did I know how much I would end up loving his choice and still be doing it nearly 10 years later.
My brother sent me a story today. His friend took a guy up the same mountain that was my very first mountain climb. Only they did it when there is lots of snow. We went in the Fall. I think we made the better choice. Here’s the guy’s account of his trip if you want to read it. http://footfeathers.wordpress.
Reminiscing, here’s a list of my climbs and stories to match. As you can tell by the dates, this is my Labor Day trip each year. Kind of funny.. something about 8/31 and 9/2 must make us want to climb! If you have some time, at least look at the pictures. They are still breath taking to me each time I look at them. If you have extra time, read the stories. The first one is my account of our trip, the rest are from my brother’s perspective. He’s a great story-teller so you kind of feel like you are there with us without the physical exhaustion part.
