I went out into the backcountry today for roughly a 9 mile RT snowshoe hike! After spending most of the Winter training indoors it felt good to finally do a proper outdoor hike - I even had a chance to briefly hike on the PCT, near Agnew Meadows. There's still a crazy amount of snow but the Sierra is slowly opening up as Spring approaches.
On a side note, spending a few months in the Himalayas then coming back to live and train in Mammoth at 8,000 ft has my endurance feeling supercharged! I can't wait to hit the trail this Summer! 😎

Thru-hiking season is kicking off and I find myself missing the trail more and more each day. I am itching to get back out there. I can't wait until it's my turn to hit the trail again! Good luck to everyone hitting the trail this year!

Feeling reenergized after spending the past few days wearing shorts and a t-shirt in sunny 80-degree weather. I could feel the hot bright sun engulfing my entire body and warming up my cold bones. Now I return to the mountains feeling as warm and radiant as the sun I basked under, despite another storm looming today. To say I missed the sunny desert is an understatement 😎

As sunset quickly approached, most of the Sierra was still covered in clouds. We were feeling bummed that we wouldn't get to catch the evening glow, but just as the orange and yellow light began to appear, all the clouds parted and Mt. Whitney broke through the fog like a majestic monster wearing a golden crown.

#1 : I will undoubtedly remember 2018 as the year I traveled to the roof of the world. Not only did I experience some of the most dramatic and beautiful mountain scenery and had some of the best hiking days of my life, I got to do it alongside my best friend. .
More than anything, the time I spent in these mountains taught me patience and the true meaning of resilience. I learned to navigate around my expectations, to accept and enjoy any outcome regardless of my preconceived notions of success and failure. To enjoy being because that is where I am meant to be. .
Wishing everyone a happy 2019!
