I love the experience of hiking to a beautiful untouched destination deep in the mountains. You start excited and hopeful. Then it gets hard, and you push, push, push. You’re working SO hard, and then when you finally get to the destination, you realize it was all worth it. To be be immersed in such breathtaking and raw nature is why we do it. I dream of those places when I am not there, and that is the power of it! I feel strong and empowered by experiences like that, and will never stop climbing. My dog, Daisy, loves it too!
