Earlier I posted a picture of me trying to climb Borah Peak in 2009.

Here's a picture of me at the top in 2010.

Maybe it wasn't you who did it, but some of us get offended when we see the flag tossed on the ground like that.

It wasn't me. I was raised to respect the flag; honestly you pointing it out here was the first time I noticed it laying there on the ground.

I believe the flag was either brought up or removed from it's casing (everything up there is encased in snowproof containers) by one of the other four folks that made it to the top that day. Although one of those was a firefighter who was climbing in honor of the FDNY folks who died in 9/11, so I doubt she did that.

Anyhow, thank you for pointing that out; I have a friend who might be climbing that same peak later this summer and I'll ask him to ensure that the flag, if it is still there, is treated appropriately.

Thanks for pointing it out.

I think it's more appropriate to reflect that we risked our asse(t)s to defend a way of life that lets Americans express their First Amendment rights in that manner without fear of rebuke.

That's also how I feel when I see people who won't render honors to the flag when appropriate. I smile at them so that they know they have me to thank for their freedom to behave in that manner.

WouldnŽt it be more practical for you to just turn around? Next thing youŽll do is try to fit your booties in, and that would be most outrageous!!

I like the high-tech climbing gear: running shoes and jeans. I assume it was in the summer, right?

When Serena smiles at me I'm not grumpy at all. Hopefully she will only know me as Grandpa Dave. She will be growing up bilingual as her mom is Brazilian and speaks to her in Portuguese so I'm not sure what she will call me.
