The lure of the mountains has always been there for me.  Maybe it is being born into a family of mountain climbers, or maybe it's just the magic of the Northwest, but to me there is nothing like it.  My biological father first climbed Mt. Rainier at the arainierge of 16, and was killed in a climbing accident on Mt. Hood when he was 21, coincidentally the same age I first climbed Mt. Hood.  My stepfather and mother were both climbers as well, and they climbed Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, Mt. Jefferson, and Mt. Shucksan among others.  After several of their closest friends were killed on Mt. Hood several years ago, they decided to pursue other recreation.  

Sandra has agreed to try mountaineering!!!  We thought this day would never come, but come it has.  I gave in to play soccer with her and she gave in to climb mountains with me.  Sounds fair enough, doesn't it?  

We've  peaked Mt. St. Helens together, up Monitor Ridge to the crater.  See our Mt. St. Helens page for more info on that.  

I've also revealed long lost photos of my first ascent of Mt. Hood, and a narrative of the trip.  Check out our Mt. Hood page for that.  

In May of 2001, we summited Mt. St. Helens again, this time up Worm Flows, on Mother's Day, wearing dresses in respect to a time-honored tradition among area mountaineers.   

Then, in June, 2001, we summited 12,276-foot Mt. Adams, the third highest peak in the Cascade Mountains, behind Mt. Rainier and Mt. Shasta.  

In June, 2002, we bagged South Sister, the third highest peak in Oregon, and three weeks later, I soloed Middle Sister, another 10,000-foot volcano in the Cascade Range.
