Three Tower Tour

// May 14th, 2013 // Climbing

Recently I went on a quick climbing trip to the Utah desert with my friend Tim Nottingham.  It was special climbing with a great guy like Tim and camaraderie in climbing is what it is all about for me.  Years ago a great climbing friend of mine died in a snowboarding accident and just a few months before he died we had gone out to Utah to climb these same desert towers but got snowed out.  On this day I wore my friend Joseph’s shirt as we went back and made some new memories.

It felt liberating and free to climb these sandstone giants and in doing so was reminded that in life we need to keep moving, looking upward, stepping out, taking risks, taking the lead – even when the wind is blowing, the heart pounding, palms sweating, knees shaking – move forward.

Joseph lived that way, I can too.  Today.
