The Saturday Afternoon Fourteeners Social Club
Torreys Peak Society Luncheon
JP and I are both pretty much in the empirical camp as far as conclusions regarding the physical world.
So, given what appeared to be an apparent lack of interest in the extensively narrated TR from Columbia this week
(based on an initial paucity of comments) I had opted for a primarily pictographic representation of Saturday's relaxed,
festive ascent of Greys and Torreys.
By way of commentary I'll add that this was my first trip with JP, and I found his wit, and his love for (and erudite grasp of) physics,
both refreshing and entertaining.
We discussed physical concepts, mathematics as a tool for description of the physical world, theoretical physics, its application to astronomy,
God, organized religion, and the years of extensive field research that JP and friends have conducted Saturday mornings on I-70 to determine
the most efficient method of arriving at the ski area ahead the rest of the traffic that had been in front of them.
We also had the pleasure of meeting and traveling with Papillon and Sarah today, and met a number of folks on Torreys Peak
for an impromptu lunch in the warm winter sun. All around good folks, great day.
And so, with the notion that:
…here's a pictographic portrayal of The Saturday Afternoon Fourteeners Social Club luncheon on Torreys Peak
Jaunuary 16, 2010...
Thanks to JP for a great trip. I hope to have the opportunity to photograph your ski descent of the Northeast Couloir off Torreys.
Enjoyed the trip and the fun humor. Let's climb again soon.
Kevin, it was my pleasure to meet you and Sarah up there, and to enjoy pleasant conversation on a warm afternoon at the summit.
Dedicated to the 14ers gang,
