Is it possible we have a Minnesotan dog?! She loves frolicking in the snow!

Dreams

El Cap. I want to climb El Cap. In Yosemite. To start by hiking through the meadow, to the base of the giant piece of granite, and then making my way up, 3000 feet of the beautiful rock. Climbing to the top. Summiting. With my hands and my feet.

Somehow, in saying this, I feel vulnerable. Like, now that I’ve said it, I better do it, or else. Weakly, feebly, quietly, I am saying it. I’m afraid. But I am saying it. I am declaring to the world…

I want to climb El Cap. And Half Dome. And The Diamond on Longs Peak. And Moonlight Buttress in Zion. I have these dreams of being on top of these giant monoliths of stone.

I want to climb El Cap.

Last May. In Yosemite. On El Cap. Playing around on a little three pitch romp, dreaming of someday summiting.  (at El Capitan)
