A couple of days ago while getting my daily burn in at Seattle’s Bouldering Project I was able to cross paths with a long time friend, Kristine, who had her hands and eyes occupied spotting one of the two favorite climbers in her life. It wasn’t her husband and Eddie Bauer professional mountain climber, Dave Morton, but their young son, Thorne. Seeing Thorne practice his slab climbing technique by ascending ‘up’ the slick slide and fearlessly reigning over the SBP kids bouldering castle was evidence enough that a love for adventure is strong with this one. Thorne, at the age of 2, has also ventured to the Kathmandu Valley and has spent nights above 15,000 ft in the remote Khumbu Valley of Nepal on a recent family vacation. Please follow the words and pictures of Dave Morton here at blog.eddiebauer.com and turn your family’s dream into a reality.
Also, check out the post expedition happenings from Dave Morton and fellow Eddie Bauer climbing ambassador, Melissa Arnot’s, recent guided summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. This was part of a fundraising and awareness initiative for Summit on the Summit. An amazing cause directed toward focusing the human right of clean drinking water Worldwide.

Who wishes they were here about ready to do this?
This is pretty incredible. I just came across Canadian Mountain Holidays as I was dreaming about cool things to do this winter. They have a pretty awesome heli-skiing biz. Check ‘em out.

Earlier this Fall I had the pleasure of spending two weeks at a retreat center on the small Bahamian island of Bimini. The experience is called Wildquest and their service involves running week long retreats that take participants out to ethically swim with wild dolphins. The itinerary begins with morning yoga/meditation, breakfast, and then heading out on a 42 foot Lagoon Catamaran Sailboat for a full day out on the water.
While out on the water we visit classic snorkeling sites around the island of Bimini such as North Rock, Three Sisters, and the Bimini Road. We would then make our way out to the dolphin grounds in search of finding dolphins to visit in their natural habitat. The two types of dolphins common to the Bahamas are the Atlantic Spotted and Bottlenose dolphins.
Wildquest is a place for all ages and they promote an understanding of the “human pod”, which is an approach to finding ways to bridge the interconnections we all share as humans. It was amazing to be in the water in our human pod and to allow the dolphins to come to us. Dolphins have a way of allowing their presence to hold the space for us in the water and to allow ourselves to be present in what it is to be a true human being.
