SNEWS® Live: After Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2007, SNEWS® Live reporter James Mills drove home to Madison, Wis. But along the way, he made a 400-mile detour to connect with his friend and Devils Tower climbing guide Frank Sanders in northeastern Wyoming. Nursing a couple of injuries and carrying a little more weight around his middle than he should, Mills was reluctant to climb the Wyoming monument. But Sanders' expertise and encouragement made him consider a summit bid that offered more than he expected. Listen in to hear the story.
