Jeff, we are sure the sights make all the training worthwhile. Hayden was sure she saw you on the mountain last night when we viewed it from the Wallmart Parking Lot and Indi recognized your green eyes in the photo.

Solveig- Not sure if I had provided to you a link of the video created following our climb. Not sure if you remember, I raised money for a local non-profit.
Have a safe ‘16.
Thanks for everything! Hoody
