Westley asked me at work on Friday if I wanted to join him and his brother on a hike of Mount Timpanogos. I decided to join him even though I had to be back for the Utah Utes football game that evening.

On Mount Raymond, I certainly didn't reach my limit--after all, I pushed through and made it to the top--but I could sense my limit as I clung to various fins of rock along the sometimes knife-edge summit ridge. My tolerance for adventure is greater than some, but not as high as I'd like it to be sometimes. Given my decidedly risk averse family lineage, however, it's somewhat amazing I get outside to test my limits at all.
