I've been interested in mountaineering ever since I was a child, but really caught the fever in high school on the slopes of Katahdin in Maine. It's still my favorite mountain (so far). I try to take a trip once a year and bag a summit, just to get away from it all and connect with God. Before I die, I would like to hike the entire Appalachian Trail and summit Denali in Alaska.
