It has been over a year since I have meaningfully written on this blog. And I miss it. I have had several changes in my life in the last year and my priorities and interests have been more dynamic than in past. That situation is slowly resolving and I am getting used to a new life. In any case I really miss writing and blogging and have decided that I need to bump up my priority for those activities and get back to it as I find that writing has a positive effect.
In addition, after I finished my 40 X 50 (40 peaks by age 50) that my enthusiasm for getting to the top of mountains has waned a bit. That’s true. But it hasn’t gone away completely. I did climb last year including Mt. Flora, Mt Sherman, Mt Democrat, Beyers Peak, and a few others and I still plan on putting up a least a few peaks a year including some 14ers. And of course 13ers.
With the kickoff of Wilderness Trekking School with the CMC I realized, and this was as good a time as any, to get back to my interests of hiking, climbing, photography, and writing. I need to challenge myself. I need to meet new people and make new friends. I need to see the sights. Take pictures. Write. And of course do those things in life that make being here on this planet at this time, fun.
