Because my last post featured time with my sister, I thought this one should feature my brother, Duane. Equal time = Peak-qual time. Duane is a free-spirited adventurer who lives in Colorado. The peaks are his friends and he has met many of them. I admire his stamina and determination for climbing multiple "Thirteeners" and this is his latest climb sent to me yesterday via email. His words explain best his latest conquer, so I am directly quoting him:We climbed directly up the side of the mountain shown on the left side of the bottom half, and up the middle on the top point above the little ramp. The rappel I told you about that was so airy was just right of the center between the two summit bumps, where the face is red and sheer. Not bad for a middle-aged man!" When shown up close, Duane's face is just radiant. I love his passion for living a life embracing nature and the environment!
