#tbt 2016 When I lived in the Inyo National Forest on the Shepherd’s Pass Trail, and got to explore Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Park’s on my off days. The longest I stayed in the backcountry was 42 days... in fact, the shortest amount of time of anyone on our crew. The first two photos are from the summit of Mt. Williamson- California’s 2nd tallest mountain. The third photo is of Mt. Williamson from the summit of another 14er- Mt. Tyndall. California’s 14ers don’t have trails up to them (minus Mt. Whitney), and I got my first taste of Class 3 and Class 4 climbing. We lived in the shadow of both of these mountains for 4 months. We hiked, fished, laughed, cried, and lived our best lives that summer. I don’t know who I would be today, if not for that opportunity. The last few photos are of @choppa_daniel post-fishing trip, trying to beat the storm back to camp. It hailed hella fucking crazy that day right after we made it back to camp, and my tent flooded, not for the first time in my life. I wouldn’t trade that summer for anything. I miss all of you. #optoutside#hikemore#mtwilliamson#mttyndall#inyonationalforest#sequoianationalpark#shepherdspass#shepherdspasstrail#backpacking#troutfishing#fishing#alpinelakes#trailcrewlife
No words. And honestly no pictures do this justice either.
1. Get there as soon as possible. 2. Stay there as long as you can.
3. Convince others you've found heaven.
4. But also tell nobody so you can have it more for yourself? ;)
Woke up at 2am and tackled another 14er with this girl today. It was 31° when we hit the trailhead. Chilly Colorado air sure is good for the lungs. Next time I’m not doing the Incline the day before. My legs hate me.
