After months of anticipation, much training and a bit of uncertainty with injuries, I made it to the top of Mt. Rainier on August 1st. Yippee! It was incredible and my mind is still processing how amazing the climb was. After the trip up Rainier, Doug and I traveled around the Pacific Northwest and spent time with family and friends. I have to catch up on a lot of things after being away for so long, but I will write more about the adventure soon. For all those who have written comments or have emailed me, I promise to get back to you. It may just take me a little time. The whirlwind pace of the climb made it a bit hard to get cameras out to shoot photos and video, but we did manage to get some pictures and footage and hope to put together a short film on the experience shortly. Stay tuned!
