ARIALA'S POST IN OPINION INSPIRED THIS

About vampires. It brought to mind many of the people that said they were my friends. One in particular, who has passed away now. Knew him in 8th grade and high school -- took up a "friendship" with h im upon to returning to St. Louis and finding him hanging out with coworkers at a bar on the North...

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CLIMBIN PART IX

THE DOWNHILL AGONY So son in law and his dad came back down from the top to find me ready for the trip back down. You'd think that downhill would be a whole lot better than uphill. well, besides my osteoarthritic knees, I had on a pair of hiking boots that had seen their best days several years ago...

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CLIMBIN' PART VIII

As high as I decided to go. I watched son in law and his dad trumble up that jumble of rocks to the top, and decided to explore around here for awhile until they came back. Of course, I was tired and in some pain and it was cold and a 40+ mph wind was rushing through there from the west, making it... Sign in to see full entry.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CLIMBIN' PART VI

STRAIGHT UP or how far do you think I can go in Roman numerals? I looked up.

It looked like someone had strewn the entire mountainside... Sign in to see full entry.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CLIMBIN PART V

ALONG THE LONG STRAIGHT TRAIL It was straight, but it was not level -- it ascended. And I stopped to rest several times. Boy! Should have paced myself. That was okay though -- if I rested frequently enough, I could make it to the top -- that was the idea -- not to get so exhausted that I couldn't.... Sign in to see full entry.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CLIMBIN' PART IV

NOTE: (obviously) you should start at Part I and read from there. THE LONG, STRAIGHT TRAIL - Very easy to climb right? Not with my already somewhat tired out self. I learned right then and there and for the next several hours that in these high altitudes it was best to start slow and keep slow. The... Sign in to see full entry.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CLIMBIN' PART III

We were at the base of the first leg of climbing Mt. Bierstadt. The switchbacks of the rocks were above us. About 2 to 3 thousand feet farther was the summit, beckoning in the warm summer sun like a siren beckoning Odysseus. We started up. I pushed myself, with the expectation that I would get out...
