Those of you who know us, know that we love the mountains.
We’ve climbed some peaks and had some adventures, we truly love and respect the high mountains. I’m taking a moment to remember the nine climbers who lost their lives on K2 this week. This is a personal moment, it’s not about food, but about something that makes me tick.
Anyone wishing to read an unfiltered account, can check out Nicholas Rice’s blog.
On a related and equally somber note: Thomas Friedman’s editorial about weather change is totally on the money. I saw first hand the evaporation of the glaciers of Kilamanjaro. Mr. Rice, in his K2 blog, talks about rain at 16,000 feet, and that’s unheard of. I realize these changes mean nothing to my usual day to day routine, but they will mean something and we are fools not to pay attention. I am ashamed that my generation has so utterly failed at taking care of the planet and it’s inhabitants.
