Even Though It Was a Long Time Ago!!!

When I was in my early 20s, I had a great group of friends that I hung out with.  They were all quite athletic and really appreciated living in or near the mountains.  I was NOT so athletic, but did love the mtns, so when Jerry asked if I would like to climb GRAYS PEAK with them, I quickly agreed.  I was really excited when he told me that it was going to be a nighttime (during the full moon) climb--we would be at the top around midnight, which just sounded so cool!  I know he had his doubts about me making it, but I did, and it felt so good!  I was  able to keep up with the group, which was an accomplishment in itself, since they had all done this several times before.  We saw some mountain goats, which was really cool too.  At the top I got to sign my name in the log book, I wrote it really big too, lol!  The trip back down was a lot harder for me than the trip up, partly cuz I have a bad ankle, but also I think there was that element of anticipation on the way up.  I am glad I did it, I dont know if I could now though, lol!
