2012: Year in Review

2012 was a good year, full of activity. This spring I canyoneered or climbed or adventured almost every weekend until moving from Phoenix in May. Then, I travelled to Sweden, and throughout the Rocky Mountains until September. In September, I moved to Golden, CO with Kendra and Sagar, where Sagar and I started a business.

Things that happened in 2012 (in no particular order):

  • Grand Canyon trip with Kendra, in which it snowed and we saw no-one else
  • Travelled to Sweden
  • Ran two half marathons
  • Climbed Devil’s Tower
  • Climbed Gannet Peak and Grand Teton (removing both from the list of peaks who have rejected me)
  • Saw my Dad run the Boston Marathon
  • Saw Chris Thile perform in Carnegie Hall (with Kendra)
  • Quit my job
  • Moved to Colorado
  • Paddled Class IV water
  • Placed in the top ten at Pond Mile 5
  • Learned to ski bumps (well, kinda!)
  • Learned to bake (still working on this one!)
  • Climbed in Indian Creek
  • Welcomed Kanye, my chinchilla, to my life
  • Travelled El Camino del Diablo with Kendra and Curtis
  • Climbed both the tallest and highest sand dunes in North America
  • Became a Wilderness First Responder, and Swiftwater Rescue Technician
  • Started a new business

What a year full of activity, full of adventure! I’ve been less productive than I hoped, but finishes happier than I had dared to hope.
