OLD TRIPS (1970-2007)

In late 2007, life conspired to suggest we put aside climbing and mountaineering in favor of dayhiking, backpacking, and other, less vertical, less gravity-afflicted outdoor pursuits. So here, just for the record, is a list of most of the summits reached between 1970 and 2007 (along with a few reached more recently).

… I am glad that I shall never be young without wild country to be young in. Of what avail are forty freedoms without a blank spot on the map?
