***Updates to the bucket list! We’ve got BUCKETFUL of changes!***
The Bucket List is Brian and Sylvia’s list of ultimate hiking experiences, which we hope to accomplish in this lifetime…these are widely held to be the best hikes in the world. We may no do them all, but we’ll do our best.
Before we go any further I should state, for the record, that I
passionately despise do not personally care for the phrase “Bucket List.” I am however going to use it here for the sake of convenience, since most of you are familiar with this singularly annoying but undeniably handy phrase. Those of you interested in a much longer and more vehement rant on the subject of Bucket Lists may simply click the word ‘rant’…don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Brian and Sylvia’s personal Bucket List Hikes:
Cirque of the Towers, WY * TBD
Alta Via 1, The Dolomites, ITA TBD
I have moved these two to the “Overflow Bucket” list…I’m gonna have to get a bigger bucket.
The Llampu Circuit, Bolivia TBD
Peaks of Northern Spain TBD
*These are the ones which Sylvia pronounces her favorites, other than her top bucket list item which is to own the world’s largest hair dryer.
*Sylvia has added Cirque of the Towers to her Favorites! Yippee!
+ Realistically the most impossible ask on this list. It is easier to drink from the Fountain of Youth out of the Holy Grail than it is to get a permit to hike in the Lake O’Hara back country.
(Note that in addition to the above, Brian has individually completed three actual Bucket List level Hikes…the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim, The Rae Lakes Loop and Mount St. Helens. Sylvia meanwhile accomplished a major Bucket List item by marrying the World’s Handsomest Man in 2009.)
