Day one and my heart is already over flowing. How I missed this jagged horizon.
Seeing the snow on the peaks as we landed was literally heart eyes, happy tears, and a million other emotions.
It’s too hard to describe the vastness.
It’s too hard to describe how massive the mountains truly are. You just have to experience them.
We were all exhausted today. Hardly any sleep maybe 12 hours all three of us combined. I can’t tell you though how thankful I am for friends who are cool with this.
This crazy adventure. Days packed with hiking, driving, and anticipation of what we will find.
Tuesday we drove to the broadmoor at Colorado Springs and then to hike garden of the gods.
The broadmoor I might say was more than expected. It started to rain upon arrival and the troopers I have for friends say we are going to take on the 224 stairs….steep stairs to view all seven falls. Not only that, but to hike inspiration point at the top, in the rain. Facing our fears of heights, we did this together.
The second adventure of our day was hiking through garden of the gods. I spent too much time with “mountain brain” laughing with two girls as we named our own rock formations instead of just finding the ones given.
Thankful. Beyond thankful. We are beyond pumped for what the week brings.
