Finish: Capitol
Favorite: Capitol

Not a coincidence there!
- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

Finisher: Snowmass
Favorite: Longs

Had a few favorites, but after hiking the Longs Peak East Trail almost weekly all winter this past year, it has become my favorite.
Doesn't hurt that I have a great view of it from my living room window either.
