Adventure beckoned. Whenever I need to climb but don't really know what I want, I head for one of my favorites: Wolverine Peak. Well, today was one of those days. Wolverine is tried and true. I can get mileage (13 miles RT), altitude, ridge running, incredible views, and a dandy summit all in under 3 hours. It's the perfect way to spend a few hours on a Sunday--A spiritual adventure!

Adventure beckoned. The mountains of Colorado! I had one partial day to climb, so I decided to head up into the Loveland Pass area to explore. With terrible winds and a looming storm, my hopes of climbing a few 14ers was dashed; however, I was able to summit two 13ers: Cupid (13,117) and Grizzly Peak (13,427). It was a glorious and keenly spiritual adventure!
