I knew that climbing mountains was something I wanted to try. I climbed Little Kidd, which is an off shoot of Mt. Kidd's northern aspect. It was amazing. Weeks passed and I would look up at Kidd and wish that I was on the top. I decided to try and climb it with some of my new friends from the Kananaskis Country Golf Coarse. With little to no experience it was a bad idea. We had to turn around because we got off track and out of our league. I was so upset. As the fall turned to winter my need to climb grew stronger. I bought books and read them over and over again to feed my "addiction" over the winter months. I decided to label Mt. Kidd as my Everest of the next climbing season. Half way through this climbing year ( 2007 ) I had climbed a hand full of peaks, but still no Kidd summit. Then one day at work I was talking to a new employee by the name of Jim, from Canmore, AB. He told me that he had climbed Kidd twice and would take me to the summit. I wet my pants! So on August 4th I summited. It blew my mind. It was my highest summit to date and the best views to boot. This is dedicated to my climb. I know that it is not that high of an elevation for this site, but it blew my mind. I'll be looking for my next "Everest" next year. Enjoy.
