Jeff Valliere – Danger on the Mountain

IMG_1550

JV appropriately geared up!

Join us today on Elevation Trail as we welcome my long-time friend, Jeff Valliere, who is an accomplished mountaineer. We recall an adventure he and I had climbing Longs Peak (14er in Colorado) and how our decisions that day were critical.

The report of the day on JV’s blog:¬†http://jeffvalliere.blogspot.com/2009/03/longs-peak-full-version.html
