Our adventures are wild. We left Portland at 7PM and headed north! After driving through the mania that is Seattle and seven miles up a winding forest road, we got to our home for the night. The moon was so bright everything had a shadow in the middle of the night. After falling asleep around 2AM, we woke up at 7 and hit the trail by 8. It was definitely one of those mornings where you contemplate laying in bed and surrendering the day to laziness. After a few hours on the trail watching the sunrise we began our accent, only later to realize we had climbed the wrong side. After some down-climbing we re evaluated. As Chris went to climb the correct route, i opted to give in to my laziness and took a nap in the mountain side sunlight. Eventually we decided this would be a summit for another day. We hiked back down to the truck, back down the forest road and back into Portland by 11PM. Sometimes those last minute 30 hour adventures are just what you need.
Alaska’s ocean and salmon have shown me some of the most beautiful coastlines, wildlife, sunrises and sunsets. They’ve taught me hard work, given me grit, life long friends, laughter, and gratitude. Missing Alaska, my floating bungalow F/V Jean D, and feeling all that salmon love today ❤️🐟

These feet. They have been the steady guide to my recovery. Many times they were ahead of me. Paving the path to safety. Dragging me along in my brokenness when my legs wouldn’t work. I’m seeing our paths turning side by side instead of single line. Progress in my healing. She has never let me go. And I’ll never let go of her. For all of my days. We stand together.
