Been up this a half-dozen times or more. 4.5 hours door-to-trail head and keeps me sane. Here is one of the stories. (No money for hits. Writing is a labor of love. Day job is news director.)
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
