Sitting here in a San Diego coffee shop, I’m watching the world go by, drinking my coffee, listening to a little music, knowing very soon I will be heading East towards Pike’s Peak. This is an item I’ve had on my Life List for a couple years now, to hike up Pike’s Peak. To stand on top of a mountain and to look out across the world is somewhat awe-inspiring. But this is only a piece of this adventure. To travel and explore somewhere again with my family is something I find really cherish. It’s been too long.
