This weekend has been over a year in the making. If weather and determination hold, Janelle and I will scale the final three mountains on our list. We hope to complete this journey in 1 year and 6 days.
On Sunday, as we close this amazing chapter in our lives by summitting Mt. Starr King, we will continue down the ridge and tag Mt. Waumbek as well, a 4,000 footer. In this way, one voyage will end and, perhaps, another will begin.
But first, tomorrow, Janelle and I will set off on our final hike together, a 9 mile trip that will take us up and over Square Ledge and Mt. Hibbard.
With three summits remaining, it’s too early right now to be able to adequately express my feelings as the girl and I face down our final hike. So, I’ll leave that for another time. For now, on Saturday, we will march together, alone, one last time as partners and friends on this journey that has changed us both.
As we set off north tonight to complete our quest, I leave you with a slide show with music that I hope encapsulates some of the wonder of this past year. You can watch it here: The Two of Us
