About Me:

I've been climbing mountains for over 8 years. I climb mountains for the adventure, good company, the scenery, and most importantly to have the time of my life!

I'm an administrator of SummitPost. On Sunday I feature 2 trip reports, 1 photo, and 1 page. Monday I feature 1 photo. Friday I feature 1 re-worked page and 1 photo. I'd be happy to answer questions pertaining to SP, mountaineering, pages, or what ever comes to mind.

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun." -Christopher Johnson McCandless

"A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." -Oliver Wendell Holmes

"Getting up is optional, getting down is mandatory" -Ed Viesters

Favorite Quotes
In the Dark Shadows of Mount Logan
"I see my path, but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it." -Rosalia de Castro
Crossing a Crevasse on Mount Rainier
"A sense of uncertainty that is potentially fatal is what makes climbing an adventure. Anything less is just working out" -Jim Bridwell
A Moment of Pure Joy
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
Sherman Peak's Summit
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt
Yours Truly with Little Tahoma
"The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone, is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been." -Albert Einstein
A Beautiful Sunrise on Jack Mountain
"I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can." -John Muir
