1. So today I set out into the beautiful open space in Boulder, aiming to go on a short hike, maybe an hour or so. I was more prepared for a walk than a hike, wearing Toms and only holding about a liter of water. Maybe three hours into my ‘walk’, I was almost out of water, about a mile from the top of Bears Peak, elevation 8461, and definitely loosing steam. Smarter people than I would have turned back at that point, but I was determined to make it to the top and I was sure the way down would be shorter on the other side. My ‘walk’ ended up taking me six hours and took me through 12 miles of the Rocky Mountains. By the end of it I was so dehydrated that if I had been forced to go even 500 more feet, I’m fairly certain I would’ve passed out. I think you can take many lessons from this experience: 1. Always have more water than you think you need 2. Don’t be afraid to ask people, even strangers, for help 3. Have direction in life 4. The road to the top isn’t always easy 5. There is never really one final push, in life you usually just have to keep trucking along. Oh and also that I’m an idiot. At least the views were worth itπŸ—»πŸŒ„πŸŒŠ #colorado #rockymountains #lifelessons (at Bear Peak)
