Priorities are an interesting thing in life. Most of my life, I have been involved with mountains. Mostly the dry or nearly dry, desert variety. In my moments of dreaming, I would think about climbing a mountain that looked like this. But it never happened. My priorities became family, work and church. Mountaineering and the freedom of the hills was always something I would do another time given different circumstances. Mountains still have their allure, but now I see them in perspective. I would be much sadder for neglecting my family than I ever would be for neglecting my mountain climbing.
