Great Birthday Ideas!

As the sun set, there was a little presentation from my brothers who apparently had a birthday idea for me. They provided some clues that I pondered ... but after thinking about it for a while, I pointed to the west in the direction of Longs Peak Colorado which is a 14'er I had always been interested in climbing.

Because this is an ardeous one-day climb, I had always wanted to do it as a two-day trip, spending the night in the Boulder Field ... and they had obtained the required permit - what a great idea for my 40th birthday.
