Some places just feel... Ancient. Coming across this giant as we descended a steep scree slope into camp yesterday made me feel that maybe there are still some places which continue to march on as they always have. Oblivious to us. To all our hurry and ambition. That's a comforting thought for me.
Also, I saw two bears!!! 🐻 Scary, but also pretty awesome.
You know you're destined for success when your journey to the trail head starts with a ride in the new Tesla model 3. Although, the contrast of this first leg against the crowded, vaguely urine smelling greyhound bus we're currently enjoying for the next six hours does temper the excitement a little. Thanks so much to our Aussie hosts, Bonnie and Emma for making us feel at home these last few days in their cabin in the Californian redwoods. To the trail!
Descending into the darkness as we followed a scree slope into the mist, hoping that at the end we would find our sanctuary for the night and not an untraversable precipice. Sometimes you can't know what lies ahead. All you can do is have faith and keep putting one foot ahead of the other. [pc] @mowgli_tesla
Setting off on the journey of a lifetime tomorrow. Flashback to a grand trip through New Zealand with my dear friend @mowgli_tesla [PC]. New backpack on my back. New mountains on the horizon, but the same feeling of freedom starting to creep up on me.
