Climbing mountains with my son

summit-1And lastly, while (briefly) diverting to the world of prose and links: Longtime readers of this blog may remember the photo, above, one of a series taken on a four-day hiking trip through the Colorado Maroon Bells with my son, Pieter. My account of that trip, for those who’d like to read it, is now available on the website of the journal America. What isn’t mentioned in the article (did America edit it out or did I?) is that a little cash incentive – from myself and from Pieter’s godmother, Lisa – also served to motivate him up the mountain on those final days.
