    I missed your post. Oops.

    Training isn't going as well as I had hoped, but I'm still plugging away. It doesn't look like I'll do the double-bagger this year. I'm heading up for a hike tomorrow. 14-15 mile loop with 3300' elevation gain. Should be beautiful. It's in Rocky Mountain National Park.

    Well, I started in on my goal of becoming a 46er this summer. 46ers are a group of hikers who have climbed all 46 high peaks (over 4,000 feet) in the Adirondacks. This photo was at the top of Algonquin Peak, second highest in New York State at 5,114 feet; me on the left with the cap, my partner Mike on the right. We scored four peaks that day, so we made a pretty good start! Mt. Colden is behind us, with Mt. Marcy, highest peak in the Adirondacks, in the distance, both of which we also climbed. Amazing part of the country!
