A Grand Adventure: Standing on top of the Tetons

The most effective lessons come of our own experience. We cannot know these lessons until we have given ourselves the opportunity to learn them from our failures. Such was the case with my most recent endeavor to summit the Grand Teton.

It has been a dream of mine to climb the Grand Teton since I first set eyes on it 3 years ago. But this idea remained steadfast in my pile of pipe dreams that I assumed I would never come close to accomplishing. I did not feel I had the physical stamina or the mountain prowess required.

GTattempt02But when Kendrick came along, he changed my perspective on what was and was not possible. He showed me that I was capable of accomplishing more than I gave myself credit for, and offered to show me the way.

And so, an adventure began…

    Sat through the wedding guy and celeb photographer just to get to your segment of today’s Nikon Live. What a joy to listen to you. Pleased to have found this entry on your blog. My “thing” this year was to buy a kayak and learn to paddle. Love it. Even after falling in and getting soaked on the 6th trip. (And I had dry clothes and a towel in the hatch for just such a catastrophe 🙂
