Thanks Mountain Ninja, you saved me a lot of cutting and pasting this morning.

I hope this thread is satire, or friendly banter, stirring pot shot at people who live in Colorado for its intended purpose - the snow.

Nope, it was a couple of years ago. I rode up and back on the track before splitting off to the north. Did you think I dumped a partner up there? :lol:

"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."

Advantage: Summer
- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

Ah yes, the 14er snowflake: the pinnacle of mountaineering prowess and achievement.

Seano: Yes. I thought that screenshot did an admirable job of portraying the suffering they went through. Too bad they didn't get a snowflake for their efforts. Noobs.
