The Ancient Historian

Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

Back in Action

It has been a while since my last post. Chalk it up to the crazy academic life, which at times gets out of control. Such was the case last semester. I write from Boulder CO, where I am lucky enough to be teaching a short course at CUB. This allows me to get into the mountains, to get some good rides in at some altitude, and to generally prepare for a 6 days course and climb on Rainier next month. The highlight so far has been the nice climb up Gray’s, just to get at 14 K, with a decent size pack, and the new boots. Very fun day, and a privilege to climb with Alan Arnette. Here we are on a gorgeous, if quite windy summit.
