don't have a fear of heights: I have a fear of potential energy."

"Why are there
handicapped parking spaces at the Lazy Mountain Trailhead? If
a handicapped person is going to climb 3,000 vertical feet up
a mountain why not ten extra feet in a flat parking lot?"
mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money
for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it."
Sir Edmund Hillary
