I was able to hike quite a bit in 2003 making trips to Oregon, Utah, and Colorado. With Mount Timpanogos on July 21, 2003, I passed both my mileage and elevation gain total from 2002. It was a successful hiking season, and I doubled my previous annual elevation gain high. I finished the Idaho 12ers on August 17, 2003. I didn't even know or hear about the nine Idaho peaks over 12,000' until 2002 when a friend told me about them. I met Dan Robbins in 2003, and we finished the 12ers together on Mount Idaho. I moved to Colorado in October, so my hiking shifted to Colorado 14ers after 2003.
