TRIP REPORT NAVIGATION OPTION #3
Trip Report Chronology
(List of all my Trip Reports)

Use Clickable Maps instead (goes to another page).
Use Alphabetical Thumbnail Lists instead (goes to another page).

This page lists (and links) my trip reports in reverse chronological order. This gives an idea of how my climbing has progressed over the years (beginning with my first alpine climb at 11 years old, on a family backpacking trip in the Wind River Range of Wyoming). It is also useful for summarizing the seasons and locations of my climbing. The clickable maps, area lists, and this timeline page all contain the same complete listing of trip reports, just in three different organizational formats.
