Thanks so much for the update, Steve. Certainly not good news, but I think we both kind of feared some major issues given what you described.

I sure hope that somehow you can get the repairs done in time for a fall trip, even if not to Yellowstone. Kevin

Lori is doing very well. Her rib seems to be healed.

She will be climbing Mt Sopris tomorrow, which is just a bit under 13,000 ft tall.

She has done a lot of hiking over the last few weeks preparing for that trip.

Last week she climbed Notch Mountain, which is 13,100 ft tall.

Last week she also did the Fancy Pass/Missouri Pass loop. That one is about 9 miles long and goes over Fancy Pass (12,500 ft) and Missouri Pass (11,998 ft).

She has also done the significant trails to lakes from our neighborhood: Booth lake (11,400 ft), Pitkin lake (11,400 ft), Deluge lake(11,800 ft), and Gore lake (11,400 ft). Those hikes all start at about 8,500 ft, so they have a lot of elevation gain.

While Mt Sopris is a bit longer and harder than all those other "training" hikes, so I suspect she will do very well tomorrow.

We used to do a lot of hiking and backpacking together. I sure do miss it, but am so glad she is able to continue doing it without me.

I went for an 18.5 mile wheelchair ride today, so at least I got out of the house:).

We need volunteers for Mt Elbert this weekend. The Lockwood Foundation is going to take me up the mountain in a special chair.

This is Me, I am so glad you will get a chance to do Mt Elbert!

I would be interested in knowing what chair you use on Mt Elbert.
