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’s been a long time goal of mine to climb the Grand Teton. I spent the last week prepping on some of Colorado’s 14ers. Join me for an adventure or two!
