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.
