@abbyryp crimping and teching her way up the streaky shinto wall!
Paul Horton belayed me on my first ever trad lead and has been a huge inspiration to me since the day we met. He’s been climbing since 1966, before camalots and sport climbing were even a thing! He was a previous owner of Jackson Hole Mountain Guides and he’s put up at least a hundred first ascents from the Utah desert to the mountains in Wyoming. Paul is 69 years old and still grunting his way up 5.10. Thanks for planting this climbing seed in my head Paul, and for showing me what it’s like to be a climber!
I snuck up on Cay Walkingshaw while she was quietly playing her guitar behind one of our cabins while we were away on a weekend trip in Wyoming. She played one of the most beautiful songs I’d ever heard, I asked if it was a cover or who the song was by, hoping I could download it on Spotify as soon as I got into service... “me”, she said with a big smile “I wrote the song”. It left me speechless.
I got to spend an amazing weekend in the wind river range with with 20+ other women camping, hiking, paddle boarding and shooting photos thanks to @thenorthface@backcountry & @andshesdopetoo . It was a weekend filled with good snacks, good laughs and amazing views! Thanks to all the incredible women who joined!!
