Climb. Friends. Beer. Awesome.

When I started this blog last July I wrote a lot. In part, my descriptive ramblings were a kind of creative outlet, and a medium for sharing stories and painting word pictures. I think even more so, they were the result of a LOT of free time. Rest days can feel pretty darn slow to a solo dirtbaggin’ climber, and any passably interesting and time consuming activity is an activity worth doing for a long, long time…

I enjoyed filling those rest days with writing. These days however, I am lucky to steal a few minutes a week to edit neglected photographs. I think this is a good thing. Right now, my life is filled with doing, rather than documenting.

Here are a few that have accumulated over the past month. Enjoy!

The weekend before last I braved the long road up to Bellingham, to reunite with the old crew and drink some awesome beer at April Brews Day. It was an absolute blast. I wouldn’t have done it without a battery of funny and persuasive text messages from a conspiring group of old friends. Thanks guys!

Great friends, abundant laughs, delicious beer, and one hell of a dance party. It was worth every mile.
