"During the last three years, I have climbed my mountain more than 50 times. It's my escape to a world devoid of human ingenuity. Between me and the pale moon overhead there is only air and the great distances of the universe, a fact that comforts me. I usually hike alone, and once above Gallegos Lake at 11,000 feet I almost never meet another person. This suits me well because in my dotage I have grown tired of the human gabble," Nichols wrote. He is the author of The Milagro Beanfield War.
