@justin_pacific_southwest and I set off on an adventure this past weekend. I have not posted about it because I have been having trouble finding the words. It was an experience like no other. We tackled Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim at the Grand Canyon with some high expectations. I have never been to the Grand Canyon before so even though we might not have hit our time expectation it blew all other expectations out of the water.
I’ve been trying to think of how to describe it and this is what I have come up with: grueling, challenging to the mind and body, exhaustion, rewarding to the soul, epic, intoxicating, awestruck, glorious, panic, emotional, invigorating, painful, destroying limitations, tackling fears, pushing forward, never giving up, determination, grit, friendship, one of a kind adventure.
At times I felt my soul was going to break. With the detours we took we did about 50 miles up and down the Grand Canyon on repeat. The elevation, the cold, the utter pain, the night hallucinations while climbing and heading back down North Rim were enough to break ones spirits but thanks to @justin_pacific_southwest he made sure our spirits stayed up and we kept moving. Thank you for epic adventure!!
