What is Ascending Descending?

It is a gift and a journey that I’m just beginning, and it is my hope that Ascending Descending will make quality products that help you remember your journey and carry on the gift of the joy you’ve had in the mountains surrounded by the beauty that is around us all.

Here’s how it all started:

“Dream bigger,” He said.

Pretty powerful words and they were literally in front of me in giant letters in the most “serendipitous” of times.

In that moment, I just got excited thinking that these words meant this idea would prove to take off and do well. But I think I was still thinking too small.

I wondered and asked myself, “How big?” and “What dreams?” and “What do you mean?”

All the answers to that I do not have, but what I do know is that I’ve been given the gift of an amazing adventure. I received an invitation that day to “come and see” what Ascending Descending could be.

So what is Ascending Descending? It IS a gift. It’s a journey that I’m just beginning, and hopefully without me getting in the way, it will become a reflection of an amazing loving creator who makes beautiful things and restores them to even greater beauty when they break.

Don’t worry, I am not going to start preaching here, but there is a story to share…

"I climbed eight 14ers while living in Colorado, but never 'got the shirt'. Love seeing that you are making these shirts! Can’t wait to see new ones that you come out with."

"I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the Ascending Descending website and your awesome story. As I told you on Sunday, my nephew is on a quest to climb all the 14ers in Colorado, and I sent a link to the t-shirts on your site. I believe he will be as amazed as I was at the beauty of the designs."
