I have climbed mountains in the Cascades, The Rocky Mountains, and the Appalachian Mountains. I have climbed western peaks with an Ice Axe and Crampons and hiked up county High Points in Alabama's Appalachians Foothills and everything between. As Muir said, "I am hopelessly and forever a mountaineer!" It began with Mount LeConte. After my divorce and going from a father surrounded by two children and a life in my own home to a divorced weekend dad in a tiny apartment I picked up several hobbies to fill the void. I took flight lessons... I joined a band and played live music (I'm a trumpet player)... and I decided that I would explore the wanderlust high that the high ground and big sky kindled in my soul. Once I began to push myself to "Peak Bag" my health and body changed in ways I always wanted. My eating and activity habits shifted to assist my body to improve and unlock these mystical places. Once in the wilderness I discovered the challenges and joys of backpacking. Many of the peaks I wanted to reach required more than a day. These challenges created a more decisive, analytical, and confident individual. As Horace Kephart wrote, "The man who goes afoot, prepared to camp anywhere and in any weather, is the most independent fellow on earth." The grind of the trail mixed with ever thinning air and the exposure of rock and ice have honed a better man; "Steel True and Blade Straight" and so I continue to push myself and return to my cathedral of vertical earth for my renewal and their recognition.
