Fifty years ago.

I am about to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of having stood on this peak. I envy that you have youth and the prospect of climbing many more mountains.

Re: Fifty years ago.

Hello Nyle. Congratulations on fifty years of climbing. I hope that I'm able to have a climbing résumé like yours later on in life. You’ve climbed some great mountains.

Best,

Travis

Thanks

Actually it's more like thirty years. I haven't climbed anything significant since 1971 when I climbed in the Cordillera Blanca. I ascended the steps of Adams Peak in Sri Lanka in 1985.

Final burial plot.

When I finally leave this veil of tears, I am destined to be interred beside my parents and pioneer great grandparents in Alpine Cemetary with a view of Lone Peak to the north and Timpanogos to east. I understand that Alpine is now prime real estate. I will share this cemetary with Mormon pioneers who were killed by Indians in the 1860s.
