β€œThey gonna try to tell you no, shatter all your dreams, but you gotta get up and go, and think of better things.”
Song: Live Free by Mac Miller
Don’t listen to anyone who doesn’t push you to chase your dreams! Life’s too short to let little things stop you!!! Just do it! .
I used to let the weather stop me! All the time! Now that I’ve heard the term β€œthere’s no bad weather only bad gear” I’ve made it a point to find that gear and go anyways!!! This trek I almost didn’t go because high winds and snow were in the daytime forecast! But because I had some rad friends that were still down I couldn’t let them go alone! .
This was an incredibly rewarding hiking day with friends I’m now closer with!πŸ™Œβ€οΈπŸ’œπŸ§œβ€β™€οΈ to top it off I got over 15 bad ass shots I can’t wait to share!!!!!!!!!! .
This is the loch! We got here just as sun was about to hit! The moon was still visible and the sun was just showing some pinks!

    @krystleann this was 10th. I think today woulda been pretty white out weather. So not many good photos for that. But I hear it cleared up a little. You just never know.

    @thehikingmermaid You're welcome. I've definitely been learning the balance between pushing yourself and hurting yourself the last year. Can't wait to see where your hike's take you next. Excited for your website and blog too xxx
