I'm happy to end my blog blackout with good news about AJ (11) and Nico's (9) climb of Horn Peak last Tuesday.
It took us 5 hours to climb the 13,450 foot Horn Peak, but we did it! I was very proud of both boys. Horn Peak is a grueling climb. The picture above is a shot I took with my phone camera. Nico was trying to find the biggest rock to stand on. AJ is just resting after a brutal climb.
Here's a picture of the boys resting about 500 feet below the summit.
I'm staying in Colorado for the next 4 weeks primarily to continue work on my studies. I will attempt to climb my first "14er" this Monday with my brother in law and some of his friends- Mt. Shavano. We'll see how that goes...
