My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Peaks, Valleys & Plateaus

Steve and Kendall hiked to the top of Signal Peak this past weekend.
I'm not sure which is the biggest accomplishment - this hike or my finally figuring out how to post a picture from my camera to this blog!

They can check off one more peak climbed in Utah. I have pictures of them at the top of each mountain with the memory of getting the 'victory' call saying 'we made it - we're on our way down.'

Life is full of peaks, valleys & plateaus. We all experience victories of reaching the top and some bruises along the way up to the top and coming down. Other times of plateaus - just moving along in life. Somehow we brush ourselves off and are willing to climb another peak.

Many life lessons have been discussed on these hikes between father and son. They have bonded and learned about each other. Although I am always happy to see them upon their return - I wouldn't stop them from their quest to climb to the top of the mountain and the lessons learned on the journey.
