The 2016 Climb
"TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN TO YA!"
Erik, Megan, Charles and me on top of The Middle Teton
“You can't reach a mountain top without friends to help you get there.”
“A seeker ventures out to find beauty.
When he is on the top of a mountain,
he discovers that beauty is inside of his heart.”
It's that time of year again!
The Cooley Tradition to hike to the top of the Middle Teton. This year marked my 19th year to climb and Erik's 27th.
It's amazing that we still find it challenging and thrilling! And keep going back year after after for more.
It's a reminder to us that we can do hard things, and a great way to work those stick-to-ity muscles.
It also renews my love for Erik because it's part of the glue that binds us together.
It's also a very humbling and a spiritual journey for me because I always see and feel the evidence of God's love on the mountain.
Also, there's nothing like sliding for miles and miles down a snow hill!
