Do you become accustomed to grandeur living in this state of wide open spaces?
Personally, no, it seems like every month brings something new to lay over the mountains and right now sticky trees and snow looks pretty grand to me.
I'm not religious but I sure as hell thanked someone for protecting us and making both of us get out alive from behind the Glacier! 🙏🙏🙏 (Rosi didn't climb up there with us)
None of this was the plan! We didn't climb up because it looked dangerous. It wasn't dangerous at first and we thought it was safer to walk around the glacier then to go back down. But it wasn't. It kept getting worse and harder to pretty much no-option to go back. We contemplated and mapped out every move we made.
Probably the craziest and most bonding tinder friendship that will evolve from this! I have never been this scared in my life and can't say I was confident I was gonna make it. I had 1 try. Either I make it across the gravel without going down there or not. It wouldn't have been as scary if the wasn't a giant hole going deep into the cave there where we climbed along that rocks wall. Those 2 rock platforms standing forward was all I had to make a big jump onto the gravel and crossing to the side where I ultimately (thank god) got to film this, hoping I wasn't going to slide down with gravel into the cave. I was shaking when I recorded the video. Video stabilization must have fixed it.
Thank you Max for staying strong out there with me.
This is the Colorado River at Lions Park in Moab, UT just above the confluence with the Green River in Canyonlands National Park. Considered to be Moab’s prettiest park, I am on the pedestrian bridge over the river that connects to a foot and bike trail into Arches National Park.
