On top of the world.
People ask about the picture of a young teenager sitting on a mountaintop. It’s me, Sia Staehle (in those days), at age 15 (roughly), signing the logbook somewhere in the San Juan Mountains. I climbed a few peaks in Southwest Colorado with my dad that summer, but I don’t remember which one this was. He must have taken the picture and somehow it fell into my hands several years ago. Was that the beginning of Shannon’s stories?
