Rachel did it!

During a short family vacation, Rachel and I climbed Mt. Cameron – her first “14er” – that’s a peak 14,000′ above sea level. To be exact, it’s 14,239 ft. or 4,340 m. At age 9, Rachel beat her brother Jay, who has climbed seven of them – because he got his first one at age 15.

The rest of the family? They had already gone to climb a few more adjacent peaks.

  1. Congratulations, Rachel! I climbed my first 14-er (it was a 15-er) in Ecuador at age 19, and my first 14-er in the Rockies in 1981 or so (Horn Peak).

    Paul, I like the way the shadow of our nose makes it look like you’re missing a tooth or two.
