 Anniversary on a 14er   

I am lucky enough to have a wife who loves the outdoors and climbing 14ers. For our 12 year anniversary we set off to climb Mt. Democrat. She agreed to wake up early and we were hiking by dawn. It was a bit chilly at first but the sun came out quickly. The trip up was relatively uneventful, and the peak was not too crowded. On the way down we ran into 2 hikers, each w/ a tiny Chihuahua on a leash. Holy cow that is a tiny dog hiking up a 14er! We toasted to our hike and 12 year of marriage at a local Pizza Pub for lunch. Not a bad way to spend the day

Nice story     2011-08-31 13:37:43
My wife and I have climbed all 38 of our 14ers together and went up Whitney on our honeymoon. She has to be the best hiking partner I could have. Glad to see others out there sharing in the same way.
