Hiked Garibaldi with my buddy Stephen! He took this shot at The Barrier. Fantastic day! See more of our adventure here. I’m particularly fond of the face plant photo below! :).

The afternoon challenged us to say the least. The ground became sloshy. My legs cut through snow like a hot knife slicing butter. We opted to leave the snowshoes in the car due to their weight. Massive mistake. Great workout though! 🙂 Read the stages of postholing here! Absolutely hilarious and I thoroughly experienced them all.

My interest is the journey. Negotiating the terrain. Trying to overcome the challenges and adversities along the way. Immersing myself in an experience that tests my perseverance and strength. Willing myself to take another step knowing I may sink again. And again. And again!

Cheers!
