I do it for therapy. We live in the city and it’s nice to get out and away from all that.

It’s transportive.

It’s freeing and it’s transportive. I’m a shrink so it’s nice to escape the feelings and emotions that come with that. My friend took me up my first 4,000-footer – Mt. Pierce – and it was totally socked in. But I was so pumped to be on top of a 4,000 foot mountain! I came back three weeks later and did seven more.

I was raised hiking.

I was raised hiking. Growing up my mother would take us to the Adirondacks all the time. Now I enjoy it myself.

Summits On the Air. I’m a ham radio operator. You get points for signing on at the top of the mountains. But that’s just one reason.
