natgeotravel Video by @tobyharriman// Sometimes the best part of life is confronting a “why?” and then doing it just to see what becomes of it. That was this day, when my buddy @Kyle_kochan and I decided to fly out to Inner Lake George and the Knik Glacier area. Apparently a while back, someone left a green canoe, life jacket and paddles (only one left) around the lake for anyone to use (which I have to say is a very Alaskan thing to do). We found it, and made something special of the experience. It has definitely gone through some damage and duct tape repair, so paddle at your own risk if you ever make it out there!

That black dirt covering the glacier is known as cryoconite, which is very fine textured dust made of a combination of small rock particles, soot and bacteria. Over time, the accumulation of cryoconite has caused a phenomenon scientists call “biological darkening.” As the powdery dust built up on snow, glaciers and icecaps, it got buried within the ice. However in a self-accelerating process, as more cryoconite is exposed, it further increases the rate of melting and therefore the visual darkening of the glacier.

I lasted around 5 months at a typical 9 to 5 desk job in the Bay Area. I definitely miss that consistent and guaranteed pay check though. 🤑This life was fast lived and after quitting, I zeroed in on one long term goal; to created and live by my own rules, being my own boss and with an office view that changes by the second.
Don’t ever let anything stop you from literally living your dreams. It’s not easy, it’s actually scary as hell sometimes (or a lot of times) and it’s a 100% hustle, non stop and year round. I will end with this, you will never ever achieve this dream if you don’t go out, make a change and try it and dive right into the deep end for a bit!
