So, as promised, here are some pictures from my latest hike up Quandary Peak last weekend. Quandary is a 14,265 feet mountain in Summit County Colorado. And, those of you not from Colorado, we have 54 of these 14’ers, as they are called. And I have decided at my young age of 44, to attempt to climb all of them before I die.
The one thing that happens (and maybe you’ve noticed too) is that when you become a mom, your passions and yearnings for trying new things get put on the back-burner. Well, for me, I just really needed some new adventure, so I started thinking of what is doable as a mom with a business. I know it’s not groundbreaking, but it’s something challenging and physical (of course) and I can get done in a day. The bonus, is that I’m doing it with my man-friend — something we can do together (always a good thing in relationships).
I think it’s important to continue to find new challenges, new things to get you excited and to make your life more interesting, more full. Maybe, it’s learning a new instrument, or taking an art class, or riding horses, but whatever it is, it’s for you.
The continuous uphill climb begs for lots of water breaks. Check out that mountain behind me . . .
That’s a lot of rocks.
Made it! After 3 hours and 6 miles.
What a feeling of accomplishment!
Thanks for reading . . . . and now, go find a mountain.
