Mount Elbrus journal entry:
August 10, 2002
“How do I begin to describe a climb that speaks to me in so
many ways? It is another of the "Seven Summits", the
highest peak in all of Europe. It is that high adventure that sparks life
into my soul. On yet another level, it is a challenge to my MS and
physical limitations. On the deepest level, it is a time to begin
healing from my mother’s death, only 5 devastating weeks ago."
