A Trip on the Mountains
Last week, I went snowboarding in Colorado.
It was a great trip. It felt great to hang with the boys.
The best part of the trip was the last day. Butcher, Sunshine and I went to some backcountry mountain and hiked up it with our snowboards and then rode back down.
It was really incredible. It was a totally different experience than snowboarding at Winter Park.
Obviously, it was different because the walk up the mountain was very difficult. A much different experience than taking a chair life.
But it was also different because we were the only ones on the mountain. We saw a few people but for the majority of the run, it was only the 3 of us, alone, on the side of a huge and beautiful mountain.
We hiked up to 11,750 feet. The air was so much thinner and it was noticeably harder to breathe.
It helped me think. It helped me put some things into perspective. It was an experience I’ll never forget.
I made a YouTube video about the day. Check it out below.
