February 5th, 2005

After exchanging emails earlier in the week with fellow 14erworld member Jason Halladay, we decided to climb Mt. Democrat, Mt. Lincoln, and Mt. Bross on Saturday. Jason is completing a second round of all the 14ers and still needed these peaks, while Amy and I were just looking for some new winter Fourteeners. I had been sick with a cold for the last two weeks, but began to feel better towards the end of the week. Oppositely, Amy who had been feeling well while I was sick, got my cold on Wednesday and stayed home from work Friday with a fever of 102. She still wanted to come along, but I convinced her to stay home and not make her cold worse.
