Do you rate activities like I do? 🏔
In this mountain community fostered by common interests for those big, beautiful piles of rock that we climb, walk, bike, and run through is it the more badass, the more technical, the better? Is it the highest, scariest way up wins the mountain badass points?
My overly active, “what’s next” brain is already considering what’s next for me a year from now when I’m done my masters. A moment of clarity and conversations with those who know me best allowed me to admit how low my risk tolerance levels are. How technical scrambling makes my heart pound and totally drains me of energy. How I love where it brings me but the journey tends to shake me. Part education, part experience, and part trusting my gut will likely get me far but maybe, just maybe, it’s not in the cards for me. And maybe, just maybe, that’s ok.
So maybe it’s about going longer or faster or into uncharted territory for me and not always about higher, more technical, and more risk. Maybe it’s the backcountry campsites, waterfalls, and back roads that shape my mountain experiences. And maybe the real mountain badass points are won by simply being out there, no matter the capacity ✌️ 📸 @jerboych
He’s clearly enjoying himself way too much! (Thankful for private property to practice one.) I can’t help but feel a little scared seeing both boys in the front seat of my car. #troublemakers Yikes! They’re growing up way too fast.
