Sea to Summit

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.

I’m sorry to hear that. I hope your ankle will recover quickly.

Thank you! Hope so too.

On the verge of a breakdown

When I’m upset or angry, I climb. When I’m upset or angry and can’t climb I vent to him. He is visiting the college he’s attending next year. Meanwhile, I’m here anxious over a long distance relationship next fall, coming to terms with saying goodbye, again. If thats not shitty enough, my bed is the top bunk in my dorm and I have a fractured ankle. Made it to my bed after a series of attempts and then spilt soda all over my sheets. Limped down three flights of stairs to wash them. Now, I’m sitting outside of my room drowning in my misery because everything sucks. 



sea-to-summit:  Last night on the trail was paradise, by far the best place I’ve pitched a tent.

These kinds of photos drive me crazy.
According to Leave No Trace Wilderness Ethics, you should not be camping this close to water—you should be at least 200 feet away from water sources, to protect both the water source and the surrounding vegetation.
Camping near water is also cold.
If you’re camping near a localized water source in a desert, you’re likely keeping animals from drinking while you’re there.
These are a few of the things to think about when choosing a campsite.

lol. Loosen up, bud. I slept there for one night, curled up in a bivy sack, so I was plenty warm, and this certainly isn’t the desert so all your furry friends had plenty to drink. My tent did not cover or harm any vegetation, unless you are worried about the dirt too. Jeez luise, woman. People like you drive me crazy.

"The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them"
