Lately I have turned my back on the indoor world and embraced what the outdoors have to offer. In the last month I have spent more days outside climbing, hiking and taking photos than I ever would have in an entire season. It feels like its a new leaf turning but, when I think about it that leaf has always been there it just sat heavy, not easily turned.
Clear Creek Canyon has been one place I have been directing the majority of my energy along with just driving around the Rampart and south Castle Rock area for photos. Climbing is finally starting to truly take root in me and pushing me to go outside and brave the elements of earth. Windy days in the front range, snow covered mountain roads, rainy days in Ft Collins and the dreary London weather days that seem to be increasing lately.
Things like this make me wonder where those days go. When exactly was the last time anyone had a day where they were wandering along a mountain trail, field of flowers, walked the local train tracks or followed the edge of the water on a beach like a tight rope for no reason and when did those days stop? Everyone knows why they stopped but if you know why then why did you let it happen? So the plan. The plan is to fill my days with days like this and make sure it never stops.
