Mount Rainier

I rarely plan my vacation time in advance but I’m making an exception for 2019
I just signed up for an expedition to climb Mount Rainier in Washington.

I remember the first time I saw a photo of a mountain called Cerro Aconcagua in early 2009 my first thought was; “I have to climb that mountain.” After 5 months of training (2 hour daily workout + 20 Colorado 14ers) getting my weight down to a ridiculous 132 pounds I went for it and reached the summit at 22,841ft on December 17th, 2009.
Mount Rainier is a much simpler and easier climb but it should give me some good snow experience. The end goal is to climb Mount Denali, Alaska in 2020.
