My climb today was a beautiful one. I opened my eyes to gaze upon a wild land that I can tame myself one day as a Sierra National Forest/Park Ranger. I've learned to bring myself back to reality from a once impossible lifestyle. It changes the hardest to change in a great way. It opens opportunity. This experience has taught me to be a little more open-minded. A little more patient. A little better of a backpacker...
