Trip Report

My 200th summit!! OK - not a very impressive summit but it's a milestone that I'm quite proud of. Not many folks get up 100 summits in their lifetime and I was about to stand on my 200th! In order to get 200 summits you have to burn a LOT of calories, walk a LOT of kms and take a LOT of extra breaths! It's also been a lot of adventures and a lot time spent pondering life and it's many aspects. Without climbing I think I'd be a mental and physical mess, so mountains have impacted my life in a way that's hard to explain. Back to Saddle Mountain... ;-)
