Message and photos from my Colorado grandson and his S.O. this morning - a final "altitude climb" today ....and then they head to Africa later this week to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro.

My idea of a 'mountain vacation' is a hotel room with a view of the Rockies or a chalet in the Smoky Mountains...keyword 'view'. Since this is the first item on their bucket list - I almost hate to ask what comes next.

    Sounds exciting!

    I'm with you on the mountain vacation - I also would prefer
    a nice hotel room, spa treatments and lots of room service.

    Good luck to them on this climb.

    As they explained to me when they visited in July - except for the very last 'summit' part.where the temp and oxygen levels can be challenging...this is an easy (their description) climb of trails rather than rock faces.


    Sure it is....I'll just look at the photos...

    Nicholas? Are you close to the coast - not sure where you are in Texas.

    My son and d-in-law just got home tonight from a trip to several southern states. They spent a couple days on the Alabama coast and said the waves were really high due to that storm and it was only passing by. That was before it turned into a 'real' storm.

    Good luck - hope you aren't in a flood zone.

    Followup on the mountain trek.


    Grandson and his S.O. had a great climb and reached the summit - where he proposed. How cool is that??? THAT will be a story to tell their grandkids in a few decades....

      These Marriage Summits are always difficult to negotiate, but looks like a successful agreement was reached. The prospect of you become a great grandmother however...

    He hasn't sent the pix yet.... every time I try to post images here it doesn't work....I used to post them without any problem...


    My four 'grands' all tell me they have no plans to have kids for a 'long time if ever' - they all have such grand plans...lists of mountains to climb, countries to visit, things to do...busy group.
