Achievement – some people think of running a marathon, others who live with illness think of doing up a button or walking a block. I thought of my own quest to trek as many spots as I can in my life. I have been to 11,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies and the Himalayan Hills, down into the Grand Canyon and up to almost 14,000 feet in the Andes. Everest Base Camp, the Alps, Kilomanjero and Mount Fuji are also on the list. One day, I’ll get there.
I had to include the next, despite the fact that it doesn’t follow the trekking theme. The sense of you and the elements is as tangible when pulling hard through a set of rapids as when breathing evenly and deeply at altitude. There is nothing like either of them.
I'm a Canadian who loves our planet and the people living on it. I also love to travel and take pictures. I'd like to think I've improved a little, but am pretty sure there's room to be better.

Wonderful achievements. I’ve never climbed a mountain but I have been white water rafting several times. Going again is on my bucket list. 🙂
I’ve only rafted the once, but would love to do it again. I hope you get to.
