Present and Not-Too-Distant Future

A couple of weeks ago, Alex fractured her tibia during gymnastics. She's healing nicely, but she won't be back on the trails again until late spring. You can read about her injury on her hiking blog,

Sage wants to do a few 4Ks in the next couple of months, starting with Cannon on Feb 20th. Her hiking adventures, when without her sister, are chronicled here:

All three of us have big highpointing plans for this year. If all goes well and Alex's leg heals properly, we should be able to get Hawaii in the spring, New York and Maine in the summer, and Texas, New Mexico and Arizona in the fall. That will bring our total up to 40.

Alex will resume knocking off winter 4K peaks in the winter 2011-2012 season. She wants to finish the list next winter, which is ambitious but possible. We'll see how it goes.
