I'm sensing an Elk-finisher theme...

I finished with Triple M (Alyson) on Capitol a little over 4 years ago, Aug. 19, 2007:

Good idea Kiefer!

My camera card got erased on finisher day but I did end up with this one...with my climbing buddy Paul Perea...who gave me the shirt on the summit.

Mt. Evans (so family could come up and join in the celebration. We had adult beverages and Kentucky Fried Chicken on the summit!)

I finished on Pikes, which I had been up at about 16 months old with my parents. Saved that one for last so they could join me on the summit. The upper photo is dad and myself in '76 (taken by mom), the lower one is the finisher group shot, Interesting to compare the sign from then to now as well, you can even make out some of the same rocks near my legs. :D

I also finished on Pikes so that family could join, along with good friends from this site.

It was my Grandma that first took me into the outdoors, so it was only natural to have her there, too.

This thread is awesome. Also, Snowmass looks like a good/popular finisher. :)

PIkes with friends/family as well. We rented out the cabin at Barr Camp. Good times...

Mike, I wonder if my daughter can make a similar comparison someday with this picture?
