A couple years ago Thomas and I started heading out during the week after
work to get some exercise by hiking up some of the local trails off the I-90
corridor. Our first big challenge was to get up Granite Mountain in the
winter. It took us three tries to finally make it through the deep snow,
freezing winds and ice all the way to the top via the southwest ridge. Since
then we have done it many times both winter and summer. We have recently
began to be more diligent about taking photos and videos of our trips and
hope to compile some kind of short movie some day about all this nonsense.
Links at right for what we have done so far and the
blog has the most up to date info.
