Although 60 is not the new 30 - no matter who says what - it is true that age is just a number. Exhibit A: look at the photo below. It probably does not look remarkable - two men on a trail in the mountains.
Now, look again - the mountain in the back is Mount Washington in New Hampshire, the highest mountain east of the Mississippi and north of North Carolina. It is a tough slog up there - trust me! Look at the men - the guy in the orange hat is my friend Dick. He is 89 and a half, and at the end of the second day of a three day hike up there last week with his grandson. He goes every year, and plans on doing it when he is 100. I plan on joining him on that one!
Exhibit B. Well, I think Exhibit A is enough. No matter your age, enjoy life and do things while you can, because some day, there is a guarantee for every single one of us that we will no longer be able to do the same things, or anything for that matter. So get out there and enjoy the beautiful things in nature every chance you get.
Seven years ago, by the way, it was my younger brother and I that made this trip with Dick. Strolling down memory lane, here are a few photos from July 2007.
