DAY 4: Kibo Hut
The part I remember most about day 4 is a pounding headache and black dust filling your eyes and nose as we took on the valley. Altitude had got the better of me today. The mental challenge of this trip started to outweigh the physical. Negativity and doubt started to creep in as I tried my hardest to stay positive. I learned very early on, a positive mind is vital to survival on this trek.
Every part of your body had to be covered today to be able to endure the windy dust storm conditions. The temperature was dropping as we edged closer to Kibo, along with the oxygen in the air. After a gruelling 8 hours and a rocky climb to finish our day we arrived at Kibo Hut. The feeling of arriving to your destination at the end of the day like this is quite hard to explain. You are delirious, elated and absolutely exhausted. You don't know whether to laugh, cry or pass out. Every part of your being wants to crawl up into a ball and go to sleep. We were raging hungry, dehydrated, freezing and covered from head to toe in thick brown dust, but we were another step closer to the ultimate goal. We had 5 hours to have dinner and rest before we set off at 11:30pm in order to reach the Summit before sunrise. At the time we didn't really know what we were about to endure.
Total hours: 8 hours
Total km: 11km
Total elevation: 4720amsl
Difficulty: Ridiculously Hard

I was taking photos of this custom order to send to the client (hey @bethanializaran!) for approval and Walt snuck in a couple with me in the frame while I was adjusting the hoops and fibers. 30 has been the most liberating year of my life. I've stood up for myself, I've tried new things, I've made new friends, I've just put myself out there and have gotten nothing but positivity in return. In other words, I've come into my own and after years and years of insecurity, it feels really nice to finally be in this place. #morethanamama #womenmovemountains #arsfibers

"One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am – a reluctant enthusiast…a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much: I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies...You will outlive the bastards." -Edward Abbey

To the strong women. You inspire me. You are my superheroes. #womenpower #internationalwomensday #womensday #womenmovemountains

One of my best girlfriends bought herself flowers today, and when we met for lunch she brought me three of her flowers. Because the best girlfriends share and lift one another up. Feeling lucky. #womenmovemountains #red
