Conquered mountains today!

I woke up at 3am and quickly realized everyone had a rough, cold night sleep. But that cold made it our quickest camp breakdown yet 😂

Started morning with a 4.5 mile climb.
Everyone was freezing, but we were determined to push through! At times we went 100 steps between quick breath breaks, but…

WE

PUSHED

THROUGH!!

The sun came up just as we were getting to the top. The views were spectacular, but the wind was howling! We had to find shelter from the wind so we could have breakfast and hot coffee.

We did another 5 miles with our second climb all before lunch! 💪

As always the last part of the day is the toughest. At first the landscape changed from desert to grassy forests which was a beautiful sight. But then we entered rocky terrain which tested our patience and ankle strength. Slow and steady we made it through to camp with no injuries!

Camp was full of laughter and fun tonight, but in the back of my mind I’m sad that this is our last night together. To be around such amazing women it’s truly a gift. ♥️
