I have had the longest week ever. Before we left for Honduras, we got to go to the temple, which was very spiritual and a bit different. It is a good place to be always. The airports were way way ghetto and I didn’t enjoy them much, but we made it here safe and its […]

In our attempt to get all the summits on the Core 77 Peaks East of Salt Lake Valley, we submitted Mt. Wolverine this weekend. I couldn’t find really good beta on the mountain, so thought to share what we learned, so you can have a well planned out hike. Start by going up Little Cottonwood […]

Recently, I finished a book that sent me on a journey that I think everyone should experience for themselves. The book, “Three Cups of Tea”, written by David Oliver Relin & Greg Mortenson is a story of a failed mountain summit ( Greg on K2 ), getting lost on the descent, and recovering for spending […]
