High Points

Before the term “blog” was ever coined, I was writing trip reports on the ‘net so my family and friends in faraway places could vicariously enjoy my breathtaking and sometimes hair-raising adventures. All those early web pages were done on free web sites, most of which have long since died and gone to that big vacuum in the void, also known as “410 Error – Gone.”

Now down goes yet another of the early giants. Geocities is going away in October. That means I need to move more web pages or lose them forever.

This seems like a highly logical place to put some of the old stuff, so for the next few weeks, I’ll be posting some of my favorite memories from climbs, rides and blizzards, in addition to whatever new posts pop up between now and the end of this project. I will attempt to post trip reports in chronological order, except for Longs Peak, my first 14, which is well named because it is extremely LONG. Longs also is one of my most beloved trip reports. I haven’t quite decided what to do with that one yet, but when it does finally hit the press, you’ll know the process involved a lot of heartfelt emotion and editing.

I hope you enjoy these adventures as much as I enjoy reliving and updating them. And now, on with the show…

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
You can talk to me... (Stevie Nicks)
