“Matt was amazing. He was patient and an incredible coach. Every other group we ran into including other guide services commented that Matt was the best! You dont see competitors making comments like that too often! We will definitely be booking another guided ice trip this winter and hopefully we will get Matt again!”
Why do I love hiking? Simple. It’s a way for me to push myself out of my comfort zone. It’s a way for me to face my fears. It’s a way for me to realize how capable my body really is. It’s a way for me to push myself mentally. And, being outside in nature has been extremely therapeutic and calming for me (except during moments like this 👆🏼😝)
This photo is from my first 4,000-footer, Cannon Mountain. 3 weeks ago, I hiked Mt. Whiteface and I almost had to bail. I almost quit and turned around, because I came to a scary spot that was basically scaling the side of the mountain. (Swipe to see a picture of the scramble from google) After a few minutes of panic and helpful hints from a kind stranger, I faced my fear and DIDN’T turn around (also @nancyjeanneb yelling “you can’t claim this if you don’t make it to the top!” at me 😂). I scaled that rock and continued my way to the top of the mountain. And while I was absolutely terrified at first, the feeling of elation when I did it was amazing. I DID IT! And I finally understood the quote: “your body can withstand almost anything - it’s your mind you have to convince”. I was strong enough, I just wasn’t mentally prepared. And that is why I love hiking.
I’m headed to Utah in 2 weeks! Unfortunately we won’t have time to visit any national parks, since they’re all 4 hours from SLC. But please drop any hike recommendations for the SLC/Park City area below!! 👊🏼💪🏼🥾

“I watched the movie with awe,” —Ty Burr, Pulitzer Prize-nominated film critic, Boston Globe. •
A landmark feature-length documentary that tells the previously untold story of the early days of the radical, underground radio station, WBCN, set against the dazzling and profound social, political, and cultural changes that took place in Boston and nationally during the late-1960s and early-70s. It’s the incredible, true story of how a radio station, politics and rock and roll changed everything. The film portrays how Boston, which was overshadowed in 1967 by the exploding psychedelic scenes in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury and New York City’s East Village, emerged as a central crossroad of the counterculture and political activism in the late-1960s and early-1970s. 🎧🎟

Cloudy days are Natures way of putting a softbox over the sun. I’ll sacrifice blue sky for diffused lighting any day.
Four more paintings went south of the Notch this past weekend to @cassidygallery.
