Everyday is Groundhog Day when you're a groundhog. Did you know that a groundhog and a woodchuck are the same animal? And the name "woodchuck" comes from the Algonquian name for the animal, "wuchak." They don't actually chuck wood!
"Finding the love inside myself, I'd try as I make my way... Putting my fear up on the shelf, I'd try just to do what you say. I wanna thank you for myself, and what you've done my way." ⛰🖤 Thanks to @jacobalyle for supporting me as I literally and metaphorically climb mountains. And thanks to @orchid1970sf for giving me words & strength to do it to.
We said goodbye to our Alpha, Maya, recently. I have never met anyone like her other than my mother. Filled with grace and patience, there for those who don't have anyone else. We are a stronger pack for having been in her presence, she taught me SO MUCH in the few years I've known her.
It might look like I'm just chillin' here but actually I was just too scared to move at that moment. After this, I'll have you know that I led AND cleaned my first route outside with only minor terror involved. Fourth time climbing outside and I can finally send something without crying. 📷: @jacobalyle
