Big City Mountaineers - I love hiking and challenging myself and wish I had been around programs such as this at a younger age. I feel somewhat like I got a late start into a culture I find so valuable to my life, so I love that these programs are available for younger kids to experience the outdoors with some of the best experts around!
My perfect day:
The perfect day for me is chasing the sunrise on top of a 14er in Colorado with my dog. Waking up earlier than I want to, headlamp hiking for miles to get the head start, and then rushing through the crags and steep sections to make it to the top before sunrise. That feeling of having accomplished your goals for the day all before the day even starts is just amazing!
When I grow up...
"If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there" - Lewis Carroll
For now... I take each road as the come, when I grow up, we'll see what I've become.
My favorite hammock memory:
Spent the day climbing in Canon City Colorado, found some good cracks on a low over hang, grabbed some wallnuts and hung a hammock! It was just the perfect escape from the sun to pop in the hammock for a few mins in between routes.
Asia, to Nepal and the Himalayas. I am obsessed with mountains, and although Colorado's peaks are beautiful, I want to see where the big kids play!
