And here's to big skies and broad horizons. To early mornings and tye-dye sunsets. To sun kissed faces and wind whipped hair. To cheeks sore from laughter and fingers tired from dancing up rocks all day. Here's to belay ledge cuddle puddles, summit dance parties, and the dissolution of personal bubbles at hanging anchors. To daily recaps over parking lot beers and to Shake Shack burgers dinners. To thorny cacti and tenacious desert blooms. To sandstone castles and gritty palaces. Here's to the company you meet and the company you keep in the amphitheaters of the desert. Here's to traveling light and taking only what you need. 🍻Cheers to playgrounds of sand and the conquistadors of the useless who gather here in the autumn sun 🍻🥃

A chilly morning on the edge of the Columbia River, just outside of Golden...
Off for another Saturday hike! Aliso and Wood Canyon trail from Laguna Niguel park to Top of the World! 5 hrs round trip ⛰👍🏼 #hegreaterthani #uclasoccer
Sometimes you just can’t pass up a good twilight silhouette opportunity! We headed out to this trailhead in the late afternoon shortly after arriving in Fort Collins. In the haste of dropping off our bags and rushing to leave we forgot to bring headlamps or any other light source except our phones (standard for me). We were so close to reaching the top of the trail, but we couldn’t help but make a few stops and climb a few rocks. It was just too tempting. We may have spent a little too much time at this spot and missed the view at the top, but it was totally worth it! A fun hike regardless of where it ended.
To train is to be humbled and admit you don’t know and haven’t arrived. To train is to say I can get better than I am and I’m willing to sacrifice my present self for the future self I want to become.
Offwidth climbing. Wasn't quite sold on it until seconding this pitch. (Desire, .10) Stoked to get back to it on lead. #offwidthwednesday
