Myself & Sarah on the summit of Iztaccihuatl. February, 2014
Aw, thanks Judy. :)
You make a great looking couple! I love happy endings (and beginnings)!
Fortunately Kiefer is taller and has facial hair...because we actually look at awful lot alike.
Well, they do say couples eventually begin to look alike :)
Wait a minute here!!!! I like Sarah with a clean, non-hairy face and I like my chest just the way it is!! ;o)
Watch out Sarah! It sounds like he doesn't share everything :)
And I love the proposal too! Like Sarah I would have imagined that ring dropping into a crevice or being swept away.
I did live your worst fear in a way Sarah! Forgive the long story coming next. About 10 years after I got married I was out in the driveway washing my car, hit the wipers to clean them when I looked down at my engagement ring. Shock! No diamond!!! It had fallen out of the setting. Never found even after I paid every neighbor kid $10 to look outside with me :((
Luckily it wasn't a big stone but very sentimental of course. In a way though it all worked out because my wonderful husband had his mother and grandmother's beautiful, old European-style mine cut stones made into a gorgeous ring that I think symbolizes our lives even more.
Can't wait to see more pics of you and Kiefer together!
"who would ever have thought SP would be the new dating site/fitness singles!"
Doubt it's never happened before!
hahaha. Really, beware SPers what lurks in your private message inbox. "Wanna have lunch" can turn into "Wanna get married?" ;)
So, I don't have to give Kiefer a book for a Wedding present cuz Sarah already has one.. :-)d
hahaha. Thanks, Steve. It's cool - I'm the household and backcountry chef, so ... :-) Your book is safe and sound with me.
..to you both.
=) Thank you!
There is white smoke exhaling out of the volcano behind - a nice approval :-)
I LIKE this! Yes, Popo (the volcano) is approving of our union. ;)
i was man behind the camera.
Ah, yes, KT needs to give credit where credit is due.
Hope you had a great climb Sunday. Man, it was windy/cold above treeline!!!
My wife and I met through a mutual climbing buddy and had many great adventures together before getting hitched. I proposed to her on a climbing trip to Moab with a turquoise ring bought from a Indian local selling jewelry by the roadside. Of course, then we had kids and now hardly ever get out, but that's another story.
What an awesome romantic proposal story! =)
Kiefer proposed to me in Iceland's Blue Lagoon. He's the romantic and I'm Ms. Practical. After getting over the initial shock/excitement, all I could think was: ACK! He's standing there in swim trunks in 4 feet of blue opaque water holding a friggin' diamond in his hand! What if it gets lost? GRAB THAT RING! =)
MountainHikerette & I met on the Grays & Torreys trail. We've since have been to a lot of summits together. Wishing you many happy trails in life!
