2018


I kept the momentum going from 2017 and continued to do a fair amount of easy and moderate ice climbing into 2018.  I had the desire and was excited to get out again.  After 10 years, I finally returned to Cody, Wyoming, for a climbing trip in February with Brian Kooienga and Kevin Smith.  A good friend of mine, Justin Brown, invited me to join him backpacking the Grand Canyon in March.  I also made another trip to southwest Colorado in April to get a few ice climbs in that Kevin, Brian, and I had been wanting to do for years.  I really didn't do much hiking in the second half of the year, but getting out climbing again early in the year was good for me.  I spent the second half of the year mountain biking and got 100 rides and almost 1,400 miles in, which included a couple of trips to Moab, Utah.
