Well Blog: When Mountain Climbing Has Meaning

There are 1 comment on the The New York Times story from Nov 2, 2011, titled Well Blog: When Mountain Climbing Has Meaning. In it, The New York Times reports that:

For many of us in Colorado, a state that boasts more than 50 peaks rising over 14,000 feet, summer is not complete without "bagging a fourteener." Some of those fourteeners - gentle Bierstadt, for instance, or the twin peaks of Grays and Torreys - require nothing more than stamina and a good pair of shoes to get to the top.

Great article. I attempted a climb of Longs several years ago and turned back when my foot slipped on ice on the ledges. I later heard a story of a friend who watched their family friend fall and die from that same place. However, every year I climb 3 14ers when in Colorado, because, I, too am here.
