The 2018 Climb for Himalaya Children was a huge success! All 12 climbers reached the summit on the Disappointment Cleaver route about 7 hours after leaving high camp at Muir at 1230am.
7 years ago, Ambrose asked me to help lead a team up the DC route for the charity climb. Since then, I've been lucky enough to help out with every climb since, but mostly on the Emmons route. Back on the DC again this year; first time since that first time 7 years ago. I'm really happy that I'm able to help out such a great cause that makes a big impact on those it helps, which I have witnessed first hand. .

"Now that the book is out in the world, I'm amazed all over again at what my friend did for me in prompting me to ditch realism for a more magical approach. In some ways, the Golem and the Jinni are the ultimate immigrants. They aren't just new to New York or America; they're new to people. Like those around them, they wrestle with issues of religion versus doubt and duty versus self~~determination—but as inescapable aspects of their own otherworldly natures. For seven years I've lived with their questions, arguments, and adventures, and it's been one of the greatest gifts of my life." ~~Helene Wecker

Cooling down on a hot day.
Nice to stretch the legs after driving to Washington. Mt Rainier is awesome! Off to the Olympic Peninsula next... #northwest #mtrainier #bluebird
I just committed to getting my revenge on Rainier! April 2019, in 24 hours or less! 🏔️
Mount Rainier: Scenic alpine vista, or active volcano and ticking time bomb for the entire northwest?
something I’ve learned this summer: Monday’s are more enjoyable when you spend a Sunday like this✨
To combat my fear of flying, I’ve taken to making a mental shift back to when I was a little kid and would just stare out the window in awe - over mountains, even going around giant pillars of flashing thunderstorms. Most recent flight, I saw this out the window. I’ve seen it before, but this time I took a deep breath and was mindful of how amazing it is to see it from this angle, what a gift to know what it looks like from above. Also a huge thank you to #alaskaairlines
for always being top notch and putting me at ease. #morethanhouses #mtrainier #pnw #nofilterneeded #fearofflying #mindfulness
