I love mountains. I love the adventure of the journey and all the excitement that comes when some crazy impulse dares me to go out and experience majestic high peaks. Reaching a rocky summit or a snowy glacier or a high pass, I feel completely alive, and know that that no matter what happens from there on, I will have truly lived.


There is a whimsical “wild child” within me -- we see possibilities for adventure everywhere. We think I can do or be anything. We don’t listen to voices with reasons why I can’t or shouldn’t. We just ignore conventional wisdom and go after my dreams.


Do you remember being a wild child, when you played and imagined feats of reckless daring? I hope my stories inspire you to find that wild child again, and perhaps to  occasionally break from conformity, and indulge some impulse you have for adventure!
