My brother and I finally ticked off our final fourteener from the list and our daughters each climbed their first. The weather was perfect and we couldn't have had a better day for the summit party.

Nice suit!!! Splashing around in an alpine lake is just something you have to do.
Congrats on finishing.

It was bizarre hearing about this celebration via radio while I was wandering around over on the peaks next door. At first I thought Rachel was joking when she said the tiki party had arrived. Looks like I should have been over on Handies least the food looks a lot better! You could not have had a better day. Congrats!

Great job Josh. Awesome way to finish with the family - very classy and inspiring. I‘m sure the kids will always remember being able to share the moment with Dad and uncle.

Great trip report. My kids are still laughing at the comment about the marmot.

Congrats brother. I can clearly say that I could not have done it without you!
