MOUNTAINS - THE 7 SUMMITS

A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill. The adjective montane is used to describe mountainous areas and things associated with them. Tom Bicksler has always had a true passion for the Mountains, conquering the 7 summits will only add to his love and respect for the mountains of the world.

Summiting all 7 has been a long term goal and now that I am Diabetic it will only make the challenge that much tougher!

As Ed Viesturs has said, "Getting to the summit is optional. Getting back down is mandatory".
