So much for keeping politics off the mountain.
I am unable to walk away from the mountain without climbing it. An unclimbed mountain tugs at my consciousness with the eternal weight of time itself. Until I've pressed my face into it's alpine winds, hugged it's ancient granite walls, and put it's weathered summit beneath my heal I'm unable to resist it's attraction.Knowing nature gives the mountain more time than she gives us adds urgency to the obsession. As has been said before; the mountain doesn't care.

It can wait forever. I cannot.

You'd think I'd have the sense to at least show my face on top of Rainier..

Hokie Climber split his pants on the Sunlight summit block because he was so excited \:D/

No, on that day Ryan was running his sub three hour marathon. In his mind.

And it's not Romney either. Mitt never climbs with his pup. He leaves it in the crate on top of his car.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
