Olympic Peninsula, Wa

200 Summits of Colonel Bob Peak on the Olympic Peninsula

A wise man once said, if you keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results, you are crazy. While I tend to agree with this, 75 year old George Bauer of Aberdeen has climbed the same mountain 200 times. While there are more prestigious peaks, and over 100 peaks over 5,000ft on the Olympic Peninsula, this man has climbed the same mountain 200 times in his life.

Flanked by friends and family, this 3/4 of a century old man has done the awesome. When I grow up, I want to be like you, George Bauer. Enjoy the day and may you get to climb this mountain 200 more times.
