"Climbing is Freedom"

The title of my post is part of a quote from a great book I'm currently reading. The book, K2: Life and Death on the World's Most Dangerous Mountain is written by Ed Viesturs. Ed is the 1st American to climb the world's fourteen 8,000m peaks that took 18 years to complete! Had that freedom feeling twice in the last seven days as I was hiking and doing some trail-running. Can't beat getting out on the mountain and doing some hiking, trail-running, rock climbing etc or if your lucky enough to have an adventure like Mr. Viesturs has had so often. Check his book out if you get a chance - it's a nice read.
