Not pictured: mom holding on for dear life to the juniper tree 40 feet from the edge.
(Just kidding, she was taking the picture, sorry mom!)
I say all the time that one of my favorite things to do in life is share the things that light me up.
It’s why I coach skiing, it’s why I teach yoga and meditation, and it’s why I’m a classroom teacher, too.
I love the idea of a world where more people do more things that make them feel alive.
I know that my things aren’t necessarily for everyone,
But every once in a while, I turn someone on to something that changes their life for the better,
The way it’s changed mine.
And that feels really good to me.
I’m not one of those people who wants to keep it all for themselves.
I understand, of course, the danger of increasing traffic in wild spaces or the number of cars headed up canyon.
So, to that end, when I introduce people to these things, a big part of the conversation always includes the ethics.
Leave no trace.
So, here’s to getting out there,
And doing more of the things that make you whoop with delight, howl at the moon, and spit out the dust in your teeth,
And to doing it in a way that makes it accessible to all of us for years to come.
