A Few Words:



About Me:

I've been climbing mountains for over 11 years. I climb mountains for the adventure, good company, the scenery, and 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.

"You can take the man out of the woods, but you can't take the woods out of the man" -Gary Paulsen

"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
