The Hike of My Life!
Hello to all and a special "thank you" to all of you who supported my efforts with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Hike For Discovery program. On June 7th I completed my hike of Mt. Lady Washington in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. It was, by far, the hardest thing I have ever (willingly) done... well maybe not so willingly... because if a helicopter had come by and offered me a ride off the top of the mountain, I would have taken it! What I expected was a hike. What I got was a climb! So now I can say I have climbed a REAL mountain (not like those imitation 4 to 6 thousand footers in the southern appalachians... this one was 13,281 feet)!
OK all you Sand Tray experts... guess who the wolf on that mountain top represents???
With a triumphant howl of my own,
