They fall out of the sky when you least expect them. But even as ridiculous as it sounds, when it comes to mountaineers, their lack of time often leads them to have to make life choices like this, in a planned fashion. Everything they do is planned. However, in love, plans might as well be powder in a barrel of water, they will dissolve. One thing I always say is that mountaineers have a life that is neither normal nor easy to deal with. Yes, there will be fights about not spending enough time with each other, about whether the mountain is more important. Trying to make a person, who does not understand the passion of climbing, understand why you are leaving them to climb is futile. It will lead to fights and bitterness and darken the concept of love for the future. In many cases, it makes mountaineers stay away from attachment to avoid these things.

The Utes and their predecessors lived and thrived for 12, years in this high mountain setting, an environment that demanded unique adaptive strategies because of cold stress and hypoxic conditions. People of Middle Park coped with some of the most extreme conditions of any prehistoric population in North America, dealing with the stressors of high elevations and low temperatures by intensifying food acquisition, constructing shelters, and tailoring sophisticated warm clothing.

The archaeological record of these early Coloradans, while still meager, provides a wealth of information about lifeways in the Rocky Mountain high country. The first inhabitants of Rocky Mountain high country left a rich record of shelters, tools, and projectile points as well as food residues in the form of bison bone, all dating between 12, and 9, years ago. This record provides a robust database for interpreting their lifeways and unique adaptations.

Some couples worry about how to manage a week apart on business trips.
