I'm completely in love with mountains.
Can't hide my fascination from beauty of these utterly massive shapes. Wandering across mountain terrain I test my limits and fulfill my desire for exploration. And reaching the top I feel free, alive and humble.
When we woke up at 3:30am that day to catch the first but at 6am we never imagined we would have such a sureal experience. Just being there the first minutes was breath taking. We were really tired after trekking through Humankay lake and then Salkatay pass through the forest and then through hydroelectrica to reach aguas calientes in four days. More than 100 miles later to be here it was a blessing. The steps however to climb wayna picchu were hell but the experience and the views made it all worth it.
I'm back to trail running! 😊🏃⛰🌄🎆 Volar con el viento 🍃
I fell in love 😍 with this mountain in the province of San Juan, Argentina 🇦🇷
Life is very fun 🕺🎶🤘 When you do what you like to do 🙃
I feel very happy! 😊
The best part is to overtake people 😜
Allez ptit selfie 😊
Col de Cerise, 2543m. Une rando au départ du chalet d'accueil du Boréon, au dessus de St Martin Vésubie. 5h30 A/R avec un départ à la frontale pour nous ! Au col vous serez sur la frontière italienne avec une vue exceptionnelle sur l'Argentera que je cache totalement sur cette photo.
How do you get a bunch of kids and their exhausted parents to always be happy on a long car ride followed by days of camping and hiking? Well... Ya don't. At least, not always. It seems like siblings often have a mental relay game of temper tantrums. As soon as one kid calms down, the next one starts up with the whining and the headache. But ya know what? That's life as a parent, whether home or traveling. .
The views on the road are amazing and the experiences totally worth it. But as a parent, I found out really quickly on this past trip that you HAVE to change your expectations. You have to be flexible. .
For instance, we spent a lot of TIME hiking, on the trail, in nature on this trip, but we probably didn't cover more than 5 miles total. The kids were more interested in looking at rocks, and getting used to what it is to move their bodies through challenging terrain without toys and electronic distractions. They were getting acquainted with momentary hunger and thirst which one always experiences hiking in the outdoors. .
Butterflies and puddles and flowers were what captivated the kids, unlike the broad vistas and physical challenge that I was more focused on experiencing. But we endured the hard times so we could enjoy the good together. And although we had to endure some rain and wet sleeping conditions, we made some pretty good food along the way.
Will we go camping again? Yes! But will we try to incorporate the lessons learned from this trip next time? Definitely. .
The trick is to not let the fear of the difficult keep you from experiencing the joy of exploration.
