Jeff and I recently celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary with a trip into the backcountry. I had booked the trip weeks in advance, hoping to climb Mt Assiniboine. Unfortunately, it snowed so much the week before our trip that we were pretty sure the peak would be out of condition. We almost canceled the trip.
Luckily, we didn't. We had a beautiful weekend camping by the lake and hiking. The larches had just turned golden, and the weather was perfect. It does make me wonder sometimes... with climbing being our focus, what other treasures are we missing out on?
This year also happens to mark ten years since we first met. It will probably come as no surprise that we met at a climbing gym. I can't imagine my life over the last decade without my husband. We have had so many adventures and happy times together. And we've gotten through the tough times, knowing that we have each other.
