Mr. BadassJennifer (from work--I've mentioned her previously) told me on Monday that her dad just had his sixtieth birthday.
Then she told me he celebrated by climbing Pike's Peak.
Holy crap. That's my kind of party.
I was discussing this with DQ Director of Fitness Doug Walsh, and he was just as amazed as I was. So I thought Mr. Larry Olsen deserved his bad-assed-ness to be permanently commemorated.
The picture below this post is the warning sign at the base of the trail. Please note that it's an eight hour climb at a "brisk" pace. And if you're wondering how Mr. Badass Olsen got down from the peak--well, he walked.
Which is exactly what a badass would do.
