Mountains and men

This year the guys went higher than last year...well over 16,ooo feet! Altitude sickness hit all of them to some degree - and some of them didn't summit - but all of them came back smelling of wood-smoke and dried snow. Daniel crossed the threshold of our apartment with a big smile creasing his wind-chapped face. For a full three days, nothing could get him down. Mountains and men, they go well together.
The town.

The guys.

The campsite.

The summit!

The man.
