A hard climb

A couple of weeks ago I climbed a mountain here in Colorado. This past weekend I climbed a different type of mountain; I said farewell to my brother Kirk. It's so hard to say goodbye to someone that you have adored, played with, teased, loved, been mad at, laughed and cried with, shared a room with, and taken trips with. Someone who knows the very best, and the very worst about you, but still loves you. When I reached the summit of Mount Democrat it seemed like I could see into eternity. I felt the same way when I looked into my brothers face and we expressed our love for each other. Kirk, I will see you on the other side of the mountain. I love you dear brother.

What a summer!

Here are some of the highlights from the summer of 2009, and it's not over yet.

Megan and Megan.

July 4th at BYU Stadium of Fire

A Surprise visit
from Tobi, Cora, and Alec.

Sylvia and Laura posing
as Forest Rangers.

One of the kivas at Mesa Verde.
The kiva is the hole in the ground
and not the person standing next to it.

Another vacation with Laura and Bill
where we failed to play Johnny Cash music.

This picture was taken just to prove we were really there.

This train is bound
for glory, this train.

Two men and a train.

Tomorrow I'm climbing
a mountain and possibly jumping off
because I've done something very wrong and I can't make this blog work.ARRRGGHH

Yes we climbed the mountain and I didn't jump off. Here we are heading up the path. You can see Kite lake in the distance.

Democrat Peak fourteen thousand and some odd feet. On top of the world looking down on creation.

Riley there really is snow on the mountain even in summer.
