So, here’s something cool: Robert Walton, the other winner of the Galaxy Project, is a mountaineer! Although I’ve done a little climbing, I come from a family of mountaineers: my dad, Don Forest, was the first person ever to climb all the peaks in the Canadian Rockies over 11,000 ft (53 peaks) as well as the Interior Ranges of BC (11 peaks). He was the oldest person to climb Mt. Logan, Canada’s tallest mountain, on his 71st birthday. My sister is one of 7 women in Canada with her full mountain’s guide license. Cool connection, eh?
