A Few Words: I am not a climber nor do I have lofty goals of conquering state or county high point lists. I enjoy making it to the summit for probably the same reasons as many others do: the sense of achievement, the views, the exercise, and yes, the fun too! Hand-in-hand with that feeling of having accomplished something meaningful, I do look for peaks that provide a challenge, but sometimes I like an easy one too. The desert peaks of the Southwest are my favorites.

I prefer the lesser-known places that receive little fanfare and even fewer visitors over the crowded places that are popular destinations. As a result, I have never had to share a summit in New Mexico with others, unless it was someone who made the trek with me – I enjoy that solitude. So in the end, I see a lot – a lot that most folks probably don’t know or care about. And that’s okay with me.
