Congratulations Erika and company!  WOW!  This is an amazing accomplishment.  I know it is not the top but the journey to get where you have gotten is something to be proud of. It is always good to work with mother nature and appreciate her messages. I am glad you all listen to that, to climb another day.

To future journeys.
