The greatest wisdom is kindness The previous two years, as an 11 and a 12-year-old, were unsuccessful summit attempts. The air is thin at 7100′ and the 500-foot (50 stories) elevation gain over 1.5 miles takes labored steps and breathing. Late July and still shedding the heavy winter layer. And a nice reward for our climbing efforts to be treated to such a close encounter. Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. – Dalai Lama • • • • • This website is about our BODY.
