Today, faith got me on a mountain.
This afternoon, I received news that the mountaineering course I had been scheduled to take for the next week had been cancelled. This course was crucial to Explore the Unimaginable, as I’d be brushing up on some old climbing skills and learning some new ones. Skills that I’d be applying in Iceland and Nepal.
However, things have a way of working themselves out.
I just got off the phone with one of the nation’s most accomplished and esteemed climbing guides. He’s leading a climb up Mt. Baker this weekend, the same mountain that I was supposed to climb as part of my cancelled course. And he just invited me along.
Keep the faith.

I’m sad to be leaving Finch for awhile, but she’ll be in good hands while I’m gone.

Patience you must have, my young padawan.

Man. I haven’t had to deal with ticks since I grew up in Arkansas! We used to use bug spray around our shoes, socks, and areas where they could access our skin.

moonmode said: I sent you an ask a couple months ago, I think. It was about going to Costa Rica and being nervous and asking if you were ever scared when doing adventure type things. Anyway! I got back a couple days ago, and the whole trip was just amazing. The country is beautiful (there are SO many ways to see it) and the people there are so kind. Thank you for your advice before, it helped!!
That is amazing! So glad that you had an incredible experience. Way to be bold and go for it.
All the best <3
