Great solo afternoon outting with Stimpy the dog. Stanley Canyon was steep, rocky and full of ice flows, as expected. I was surprised at how steep and rugged the final summit push was to reach this little peak - surprisingly great day! Loved the views from the top, especially as snow showers began shrouding Pikes Peak.
"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."
