Re: beautiful!!

thanks Radek, actually that is Blair (Golden, BC)...really weird...mutual young partner from Calgary went down with injury and put us together for that weekend...heard of each other through the years...but man....we had so much in common, it was quite surreal....I had just learned I was going to be a grandfather a day or two before and he is a young grandfather scheduled for #5 and #6 grandchildren the same time my first is coming....each of us had all daughters with similar interests....both grew up cowboys....both migrated into our own businesses and away from the cowboy life...each migrated from that into full time climbing....might as well been talking to a mirror....why I added the summit shot, more for my memories than anything else..look forward to climbing with him next summer...cheers

Re: You're too young

thanks Jeannine, actually just had both girls and husbands down at Crawdad Canyon sport climbing....have to admit, begrudgingly, that both girls ended up with super guys I really enjoy hanging out with (will never admit that to their face)....one of them is a natural born climber if he can get out more...cheers
