  1. YAY Teri!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m in awe of you, sweet friend–especially knowing that you’ve endured back pain over the years. Wow–an amazing accomplishment! Hugs, Patti ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wonderful accomplishment Teri! I’m backpacking the Appalacian Trail with my husband and youngest son in a couple weeks…it’s so awesome to be together in God’s wilderness! Keep having fun and posting the beautiful photos!


  3. Way to go, Mrs. Maxwell! You look great in this picture – what an accomplishment and something to be proud of!

  4. I’ve always said you could run a Fortune 500 company with your intellect, creativity and drive. This picture proves it. You’re just standing on a different kind of mountain. Way to go!

  5. Thank you for being such a wonderful example, and congratulations! It is inspiring to see this accomplishment!

  6. Wow! Congrats Mrs. Maxwell!
    You guys are such an incredible encouragement to me!
    May God Bless and Keep you.

  7. Congrats! So nice to see that you value fitness so that you can enjoy these moments with your family. I have parents who are in their early 60’s and can barely get around…something I hope not to repeat! I want to climb those mountians with my children! Thank you for the inspiration!

  8. Awesome! I had no idea what a Fourteener was, so I did a bit of looking. That is quite an accomplishment. When you do climbs like that, do you camp out on the traill, or is the hike short enough to do it in one day?
    We don’t camp out so we have to find hikes where the mileage is doable for everyone’s conditioning level.

  9. What amazing photos. I have been praying for Teri’s back during this trip and each time I see photos of her joyful countenance on these hikes,I just give a little,”Hallelujah Lord!”
    Thank you.
