THE STORY:

My husband and I are finally going on a honeymoon after 8 months of marriage. Instead of relaxing somewhere sunny and romantic, we're taking a long roadtrip and visiting every place in the United States we deem important. On this trip, we will be returning to Colorado Springs to take on the mountain that so rudely attempted to collapse our lungs and give Matt a heart attack. Pike's Peak will be our first fourteener and will begin our 1 week of exhausting mountain climbing. Our next mountain will be Mt. Elbert where our feet will begin to swell and blister and my pale husband will probably be burnt to a crisp. I saved the easy one for the finale as we will both probably be getting over acute mountain sickness from the previous days. We will climb Mt. Democrat and return to the bottom with the promise of ice cold beer and the knowledge that we hiked almost 40 miles gaining over 14,000 feet in elevation at about 50% oxygen all for people who are more deserving than we can even fathom. Please donate to this cause. For information on Invisible Children go to http://www.invisiblechildren.com or check out their crowdrise page.
