The Feeling at the Top

Hey there future self,

Your past self is sitting in the warming hut at the top of the Chilkoot Summit Pass. It’s foggy and cold but damn do you feel good! You are 15 days into a 3 week trip that you’re leading through Alaska. With you are 9 awesome teenage girls who are happily snacking on snicker bars as I write this. You are 21, you feel strong, you feel beautiful despite the sweat and dirt that coats your hands and face, and I never want you to forget how incredible it feels to be up here.

Keep climbing, hope you are happy and healthy!
