What do you see when you see this photo? Cool, beautiful, dumb, who cares, wow, big deal?? I see a photo that was able to happen through overcoming fears. Anyone that knows me, knows I love to hike and camp. However, most people don't know that camping alone freaks me out. People don't know that hiking alone when I'm the only one on the trail for miles around freaks me out. Am I compentent, prepared and did multiple people know what trail, route and what search and rescue to call if I went past a certain ETA? Yes. But that doesn't mean my mind doesn't wander when I see what looks like a huge paw track knowing no dogs are on the trail or that coyotes aren't moving in on me while I'm enjoying a camp fire by myself.
The thing is, I embrace my fears and move forward. I love to push through being uncomfortable, knowing something great is out there. Without fear, without commitment, and pursuit, this photo, whatever you may think of it doesn't happen.
What's a fear you have faced or a challenge you're taking head on?! #fear#challenge#faceyourfear#hike#camp#explore#solo#colorado#mountains#love#life#14er#winter#snow#outdoora#nature
2nd place in the Bud Light Broncos Bowl but 1st place in the Broncos cheerleaders hearts...yah...something like that.
While we didn't win, I had a blast capping off a solid flag football season with some great people and getting the opportunity to play in an NFL facility. Thank you @playmilehigh @budlight and @broncos for the hospitality and royal treatment and members of @denverbroncoscheer for giving me a reason to smile. Great positivity and half time performance ladies!
Did I summit....no 😏 did I stuggle....yup 😣 was I in pain....you know it 😭 Did I have a great time....hell yeah!! 😀 Summiting isn't always the best part of a hike (sometimes it's the beers🍻), remember it's about the journey, not the destination. 🗻⛰
@mammothbrewing pumps out some pretty great beers. Their Yosemite Pale Ale is one of my favorites & is available year round. 🗻
Malts: ESB and Crystal
Hops: Horizon, Crystal and Cascade
If you're headed to @visitmammoth or @mammothmountain be sure to stop by the brewery for great brews and awesome food. Cheers! 🍻🍻
