The Great Northwest

After climbing at Red Rocks for 5 days, I have since travelled to Seattle for a week, Vancouver for 4 days, and I am now back in Seattle for another week. I have been staying with my brother and sister-in-law and having a great time!
While in Vancouver I visited with my good friend Amelia. She is finishing grad school at UBC...We rode bikes all over the place: Stanely Park, Downtown, Eastside, and Westside. We also had some great sushi and... wait for it...... wait for it............. BANFF FILM FESTIVAL!
It is now raining/snowing/sleeting in Seattle and I am excited for the potential for skiing, climbing, and other outside fun. Drop me a line folks, what's going on in the world for you?

Hi, and "Whhhhhhhhew..." I come to you with greetings and an attempt to catch my breath. I breathe deep after finishing a long season at NCOBS. We had our 40th anniversary party at Table Rock and Gala in Charlotte; TR is safely closed down for the winter season.

I fly tomorrow to Las Vegas and begin a week long climbing trip at Red Rocks canyon.
After that I fly to Seattle, Washington to spend two weeks with my brother and sister-in-law.
For the month of December, I will be road tripping a bit up to Vermont, NYC, and the greater Boston area.

I am really excited for my buddy Sam to come back from Iraq. I pray for his safe return...

Not too much more for now... but will write more from the road, er, our west.

Miss you all,
