On top of the world with you; Mount Marcy Summit 5344' πŸ”

During a trip up to Acadia a few years back, a good buddy of mine shed some solid wisdom to me in the pursuit of completing more difficult treks - "it's not about reaching the top, it's about making the journey up." This weekend's alpine-withdrawal-relief trip up to the ADKs not only validated this statement (again), but it also set the bar pretty high for future adventures (e.g., walking right passed the summit because I couldn't see it; learning I can't fit in the trunk of my Jeep). Guess this is 1 of 46 βœ… | Van Hoevenberg Tr to Mt. Marcy (5344'/16.0mi) #highpeakswilderness #mtmarcy #getoudoors

Finally found a girl who will climb mountains for me. Getting another 4 High Peaks under her belt over the last few days is beyond impressive, and only 34 more to go #Aspiring46er #ADK #highpeakswilderness

Thanks to the people in generations past that had the courage to make wilderness. #highpeakswilderness #bewildny #foreverwildADK #wildaboutthepark

Great Range | The "Big Slide" - 4,199'.

Climbing and making our way to Panther Peak.
It feels really different to be back in southern NY. I miss the high peaks wilderness already, until next time!

4 mile portage with this canoe, plus paddling three lakes, and walking one creek. All in all a pretty good day in the ADK.

Where the moose @?! #adirondacks #highpeakswilderness

Sometimes, I climb things.
.
And enjoy fantastic conversations with friends and have introspective moments of clarity. Confusion too. I become giddy with joy for all the beauty that surrounds me. Stopping often to look back, see it all through a different lens. Perspective. It's a neat thing.
.
2017 has been a year of growth and goal setting and so much goodness. Some moments have been absolute perfection. Others, less than stellar. And a whole slew of good madness in between. Reveling in imperfection. Realizing it's okay to not have it all together, all the time. Making peace with that.
.
Reflections.
Reoccurring themes.
Time.
Intuition.
.
A time to live and all it encompasses.
I'll take that.
And I'll choose it, over and over again.
.
Marcy, you were 14.5 miles of heaven.

She's got her head in the clouds.
.
And I'm not coming down.
.
Will be vibing off this slice of perfection yesterday for some time to come while I'm back in the BK for the week.
.
Incredibly fun and beautiful and magical ascent to Marcy. Brilliant weekend altogether, really. Completely and utterly in love with life.
