Our big adventure began on Saturday, August 14, 1997 with an eight-hour drive to Grand Teton National Park, just outside of Jackson, Wyoming. We were planning to climb the Grand Teton and whatever else we could fit into our week of freedom. Our expectations were soaring, but reality was even better; the forthcoming combination of suffering and success was a classic alpine adventure!
