Marciamallow Finishes the 14ers!

Postby Buckshot Jake » Sun Sep 22, 2013 5:57 pm

Battling white out conditions and a blizzard from the south, marciamallow finished the list of 58 on Mt. Democrat! I first met Marcia on Capitol and since we have tackled some of the more difficult 14ers. This meant a lot more than just a checklist. Congratulations!

Hey, can't forget Mongoose finished too! (Although, he hasn't updated his checklist, so not sure if it counts)
Still Here
been scared and battered. My hopes the wind done scattered. Snow has friz me, Sun has baked me,
Looks like between 'em they done Tried to make me
Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'-- But I don't care! I'm still here!

Congratulations! I don't know if you remember, but I met you on El Diente! (I was hiking with my daughter and 2 friends.) I'm afraid I'm still slogging through the 14ers, but it's nice to see others have some drive and ambition! On to the 13ers! :-)

Congratulations, Marcia! Sorry I couldn't make it. It was a pleasure hiking Culebra with you and I hope to keep seeing you at the Happy Hours.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper
