Feeling pretty great!

Nature, it's something indescribable. It's an open door to escape from reality. It's a place where you set your own goals, and follow your own trail, no one telling you where to go... Everything depends on you, if you go fast or slow, high or low, you're the one that puts the stop sign, not others. You set your own goal. Sometimes it takes nature to remind us of what life is really all about. The beautiful view will always be there, it's just up to you to find the place that you want to see it from.

map look

Checking out the map.

Today we left our campsite going towards Cloud's Rest. The trail was far and a bit hard but still worth it at the end. Never would I have imagined seeing such beauty all around me. Up here everythign is just so amazing like I'm in a fairytale. I just can't believe I'm looking at all of this... this is true beauty. Looking at it all gives me an indescribable feeling. Knowing that I started from the bottom and got up to 9-10 thousand feet is such an accomplishment. I know that all the trouble of getting up here was worth it.

It's nice to have a campfire!

I would draw a picture but perfection is hard to draw.
