J on Longs

Not much more to say right now, but "She did it!"

My favorite quotes:
"That's it?" (after peering through the other side of the Keyhole, after I've been warning her about the ledges, exposure, etc. for the last year)
"No way", after asking if she thought she could have done it *last* year, before she stated her goal and we started a comprehensive training plan of hiking involving similar distances, elevation gain, altitude, scrambling, exposure, and night hiking.
"I would think to myself, 'I'm an idiot'", when asked in the last mile of the return hike, how she'd feel if she had a 50-mile bike ride return trip left.

A great day, incredibly stoked to get up and down safely and successfully with my favorite hiking partner!


  1. I don't think I like the fact that ... I've NEVER seen a bad picture of either of you OR both of you.

    And I KNOW they get posted too quickly for culling and editing.


    And ... as a special shout out to J: WOO-HOOOOOOO !!!!

  2. My ugly mug hath spoilt many a pic, so I enjoy hiking with J so I can take pictures of her!
