The joke's on us, because he's probably up hiking somewhere at 2,500 feet an hour right now.

“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

I wouldn't be surprised!
"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

On a related note, how many people left their credit card at the Falling Rock overnight? I know of at least two (not me)...

Not me, but if it goes unclaimed I'd be happy to go pick it up and pay off my parking ticket with it :P

We actually tried to follow since we were completely abandoned. Cute cowboys with headsets asking us for money had us running away.


I was just a lost hick in the big city with impaired decision making abilities. Last thing I remember about that night was being surrounded by a bunch of Garth Brooks impersonators.

Not sure who said that but he/she must have been a little tipsy and MAY have had to be reminded he/she said that. :)

And I will admit to being among those who forgot their CC at the bar. Wasn't the tenth time, doubt it'll be the last :lol:

Great seeing everyone though!
