For most people this would be the pinnacle of a trip, that beautiful, scenic moment where everyone is staring out in the distance and reminiscing on how incredible the days in that mysterious country have been.

Hike Mount Katahdin

Every year in the fall, a group of friends get together to hike up a mountain in New England. In the past, it’s been Mount Washington, up in New Hampshire. This year, the seven of us made the trek up north to Baxter State Park in Millinocket, Maine. Eight hours in the car later, we made it to the Katahdin Stream Campground. Baked beans and hotdogs o’ plenty were all set for the weekend. After a night around the campfire eating and star gazing into the beautiful, clear Main skies, we set off for our tents as the cold-front came …

The Jump from Gym to Crag

Picture yourself climbing up the third pitch of a massive rock face that overlooks the valley floor below as the sun is setting on your back during a late summer climbing trip with your friends.

Best Year of My Life: 2015 Year in Review

Woah. What can I say about 2015? It came and went, like a set of exploding fireworks being fired from a monster truck that was driven by a tiger in a Top Gun flight suit….. Awesome. It was a year of firsts, seconds, and once-is-enoughs. 2015 took me to new heights and far off places, literally. I’ve learned an incredible amount that cannot even begin to be quantified or put into words, but I will try. Rather than try to force wisdom upon anyone, I’ll just stick to how my goal that I set for myself turned 2015 into the best …
