Number 20: Summit a mountain

 While visiting Vermont this summer, some friends of mine knew one of my goals was to summit a mountain.
 Chris and Erin are pretty avid hikers, so they also knew that I was not in the best of shape to be summiting really tall mountains like they do.
 They suggested Mt. Philo, just south of Burlington.  We took a drive out with the dogs one fine evening and climbed up the 968ft peak.  I know...a baby mountain...but still a mountain, ok?
 We had a beautiful view of the Champlain Valley from above.
 And the dogs got some good exercise too!
Next summer, I'll shoot for something over 1000 ft :)
