Howdy friends! I'm currently working on a raffle give away for my trusty ol' Nikon D800 paired with a 50mm 1.8G lens, please drop a comment below (even if it's just an emoji) if this is something you might be interested in participating in! If this sparks enough interest, I'll put the plan into action.
What is it that makes one person love another? Is it the shape of her eyes, the elegant flow of her hair, the purely physical? Is it the arch of her eyebrow, the way she learns forward and listens, the dimples when she smiles? Is it what she says, or how she says it? Is it the things she believes, the things she knows or how she reconciles the difference? Is it the music she likes, how she dances? Who she thinks she is, who she wants to become? Is it any of those things? What is a person and why does one fall in love with another?
Last night I hiked to the crystal mill, where there is no service for 30 miles. The one guy I happen to run into ends up being the 6th generation owner of a small 8 cabin town of Crystal, Colorado (the town doesn't have electricity) he allows me to camp on his land and even offers a place for me to crash but I was determined to camp. This morning I wandered into town where he invited me into his cabin and made me breakfast and shared some awesome stories with me for about 2 hours. Then I went on my way with the biggest smile on my face.
Coming from FL I was so naive about the US and about adventure. If it wasn't for a spur of the moment move to Colorado with only $700 and hope, I wouldn't be here or have been to the places that you see on this gram. The world is beautiful and must be explored.
How to have a good time on a budget: scope an alpine lake on a map and hike to it with friends. Build a Teepee out of drift wood right on the water. Lay on the ground and freeze til you get fed up with the cold, then build a fire. If it's too cold to sleep, stay up all night with said friends, huddled around a fire and laugh til sunrise. Pack up and head directly to the hot springs to recover from the frost ridden morning
This is by far the most sketchy hike I have ever encountered. Spending 30 hours/26 miles in the desert with no shade, about 9 hours/12 miles of being lost with no water (there is no trail) and losing a friend which resulted in staying awake for a total of 26 hours and working with a phenomenal search and rescue team through the night to find him. I broke a camera lens as well but nothing felt better than hugging my best friend after we found him at 6 am today, just in time to catch another sunrise and head to Zion. It was beautiful but definitely not for the faint of heart.. I cannot be more thankful for the outcome of this adventure.
