Photo from pitch 7 of 9.
This was the second multipich in my life, and my first as a "guide" (or playing that role...no money between). Leading all the 9 pitches. And preparing every rappel station on the way down. Even doing tick inspection and tick removal! Even though i had little experience on outdoor multipitch climbing, i have knowloedge about rescueing on vertical walls and safety on climbing and i think thats very important to know, its a must if youre going to try big things, or anything!. So this was a very easy line to start doing this. And best of all. It was a FUN DAY! And the views. you cant go wrong with the canadian rockies views. Easy 220meters 5.7/ 5.8 . Banff National Park. //////////
Este fue el segundo multilargo en mi vida, y mi primero como "guía" (o interpretando ese papel ... sin dinero de por medio). Primereando todos los 9 largos. Y preparando cada estación de rapel. Incluso haciendo inspección y eliminación de garrapatas! A pesar de tener poca experiencia en la escalada de largos en exteriores, tengo conocimientos sobre cómo rescatar en paredes verticales y sobre seguridad en la escalada y creo que es muy importante saberlo, una necesidad para todo el grupo si vas a probar algo grande!. Así que esta fue una línea muy fácil para empezar a hacer esto. Y lo mejor de todo. ¡Fue un día divertido! Y las vistas. No te puedes equivocar con las vistas de las Rocky Mountains canadienses. 220 metros 5.7 / 5.8. Banff National Park

When your baristas are also amazing photographers. @tessawithaj captured this beauty shot of her pals!
There’s nothing worse with photography than when the lighting doesn’t work out. You did your part: The research, the time off from work, travel expenses, the beautiful subject matter, but light didn’t show up. I have been on that end of the stick many times, so when everything finally lines up it’s like being a kid in a candy store. For the first time in my photography life everything lined up. #pnwphotographer#spokanephotographer#banff#banffnationalpark#banffalberta
I want you to know that when life seems to break you down and shatter your entire world, it is giving you a chance to grow stronger into your authentic self. It is letting you know that what you had wasn’t right for you anymore, and that it is time to move forward to a place where you will find true happiness, love and forgiveness.
When people break your heart and leave you with no answer, when people seem to not value who you really are, when things just don’t work out, all of these lead to a better path. Everything that has broken you in the past has helped shape you into the person you are today.
I want you to know that it’s ok to take time in your life to heal. It’s ok to be sad, angry and question where the hell your life is going. I want you to know that things get better in time and that you are better off without the people in your life who broke you. I want you to know because I know. I have been there. I am there.
I am relearning what it is to Love and to trust someone. I am learning what it means to say goodbye. Goodbye to the person who, even through our darkest times, was there for so many adventures, happy memories and pivotal moments in my life. I am here, trying to still hold the belief that true love exists amid one of the most painful and vague goodbyes I have ever had. But first, I need to let go. Forgive. Go back and work on loving myself.
I read a quote the other day.
It said “It’s not how you weather the storm but how you dance in the rain.”
I thought, what a beautiful phrase. What good timing to have this in my life.
I thought to myself, I will take all of this pain and let it go. There is a storm out there, but I will get out there and dance. I will create my own light in that storm. That light that shines bright in the darkness. I cannot control the weather. I cannot control other people. But I can choose to spread love. I can choose to find happiness and positivity where there seems to be none. I can begin again. I can create my own path and live my own life.
You are here for a reason. You are where you need to be. You are loved. 💕
