Where O Where Have You Been All My Life...

This little Patagonia ad dropped in my inbox the other day...it's like a video of the perfect date day with yourself or someone you love or dig or like.

Must get these shoes...run, climb, bike, run, climb, bike....such a video makes me miss the old SoCal backyard stomping ground of bouldering afternoons, mountain biking, and trail running. J and I crushed so many miles behind our house with our beloved dog....Good thing we can still do this in C.O....just not in winter.

 

 

 

 

 

your green monster

So many good things are posted on One Green Planet. You will find heart-breaking (in a good way) animal rescue stories, vegan recipes, organic food news, and much more. Who is being good to the world? Go there.

May your kindness show through in little ways and offer compassion to the planet. 

Selfie: Scramble climbed down the mountain to get to the creek. Water is high from the mountain's snow melt. It raged more like a river. Three-mile hike into the wilderness and a backpack picnic on the bank. Found an excellent site for bouldering, which, on the way back, had a dude hanging on the face above his crash pads. Now, welcome to a new day. Ahhh...

Little that I Need

Teton Boulder Project


Objects in the grass on top of a blanket: sandwich, lemonade, Diet Coke, climbing shoes, chalk bag, sketchbook, collection of pens

Results: suffering fingers from trying new boulder problems, sketching of the Teton mountain climbers' memorial, finishing the lemonade + Diet Coke, meeting my guy on the blanket 

Conclusion: packing up + walking to dinner

Memorial to the mountaineers lost in the Tetons. Slabs of beautiful granite upright.
