The fading day in Sequoia National Park. A perfect time to reflect.

Roaming free in nature and being back in the snow makes for one happy pooch. And a happy dog = happy human!

Midway through the John Muir Trail. Marie Lakes. There was an abandoned camp near here and later we learned that some hiker had been struck by lightning - probably from the camp. This long into a trip - 18 days or so - you start to lose yourself there. It becomes your home, and the morning and nightly rituals become embedded. It’s a wonderful feeling. There’s no longing for home because you are home.

Life starts when you follow your passions, you step beyond your comfort zone, and you experience that edge. It’s been a dream of mine to be able to combine all my years of experience into one epic adventure. Big mountain skiing, rock climbing, ice climbing. I’m so ready. DTW>PHX>PDX Tomorrow.

After living in the mountains for so long, when I come back down and see my old view of the mountains from the front range it’s always a different feeling. A different perspective and realization of how much better it is to be surrounded by the beauty rather than just always looking at it from a distsance surrounded by concrete.
