You can’t see how rad this set of adventure friends is.... but I’m pretty sure they were hand selected to be unique in my life. These peeps are my tribe.

I’ve gotten pretty good at judging cloud distances and if we will get a good sunrise. But when you’re a thousand feet higher at least... all my guesses are off! I coulda sworn only a tiny hint of pastels would appear.... boy was I WRONG!!!!! It wasn’t a lengthy one but it sure blasted us in the face with bright ass pinks for a good 10 minutes!!!! And to boot, we made it to the lake the loch with 10 minutes to prep for this magicalness!!!!! Again the perfect push for our midway mark on the hike!!!!!!! Pays to be outside and with good people!!!!

I might not have made it to the diamond on longs peak before sunrise but it was my first try!!!!! Little did we know how much harder the winds would make it and we totally underestimated the time due to a not so spot on review we read off all trails! Musta been some runner with the 4 hour round trip time to chasm! 🙈😹 yeah we didn’t make it to where we were expecting but we did get to see a magical sunrise right at treeline! It was in all honesty the exact thing we needed to keep heading on to the lake! The perfect push for the mid way mark!!!!💜💜💜

“They 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 “there’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!🙌❤️💜🧜‍♀️ 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!

what you don’t see:
Again the 2am wake up call, the 4am start time! The crazy winds this time probably only about 40-60mph gusts!💨🤪🙈😹!!! The amazing crystal clear ice we got to climb up with water STILL running underneath it! The stupid rock that I slammed my knee cap onto with my body weight and the tears that almost came out! The scream instead made it feel better. The complete cloud cover attached to so much doubt that we would witness ANY color! Only to find out while attempting my night shot that it was indeed blue hour and the sky was just starting to GLOW! The mad dash after this click because we were minutes away from the lake the Loch!!!! And then the sky.... how it just LIT up like fire for the most brief moment!!!! It was only half way through our hike when we hit sunrise.... the next half.. ohhhh man. Just wait till you see the madness we endured!!!!

It wasn’t all grins the whole way up! It was more like, are we there yet almost over half the way! But luckily this hike has some great rocks to play around on almost the whole way up! Once we got there, those little minds just ran wild! We ran and slid and threw rocks onto the ice! We climbed up and behind to get this magnificent view and then we topped the rocks up here too! It might have seemed like a long hike but once we got there it was nothing but grins!!!!! Even the whole way down was a treat with a glorious sunset just for these 3 Texas boys!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

New Years was started off snowboarding in Steamboat springs Colorado!!!!! Now my 2nd Fav resort!!! What nice long runs they had! We really enjoyed ourselves! Even got lucky enough that we were able to join in the last night of free night skiing with your day pass!!!! As I went down from our ski in ski out place to grab my board and head to the lift, the moon slapped me in the face with a RAINBOW?! I ran right back up toooo many stairs and ran back down to capture this magnificent super moon just coming over the horizon!!!!! I’ve never seen one of these so bright!!!!! The colors were incredible!🙌💜 ABSOLUTELY PERFECT way to end the first day of 2018!!!!!!!!! .
FUN FACT-
· A circular rainbow around the Moon, also known as a Moonbow, lunar halo, or lunar rainbow, is sometimes caused by the refraction of light through ice particles in high altitude clouds.

What you don’t see:
The 2am wake up call, the 4am start time. The brutal sub zero temps caused by the most wild and insane winds I’ve ever decided to hike in! The numerous breaks to just BREATH and cool down because hiking when you arrive from sea level the night before is a little more challenging. The 11 hours we decide to brave the wilderness that day! There’s so much you don’t see with a pretty photo!
This is one of the most amazing hikes I put myself though this year! Can’t wait to go above and beyond for 2018!!!! .
Here’s to breaking outta your comfort zone! .
