The Great Sand Dunes

Sold our stuff. Bought a Bronco. Left Manhattan. Exploring America.

Days 14 - 17 Colorado #mountainsintoroads

first thing's first

hike board sled

Without thinking, I grabbed the sled, braced myself, and took the steep slope head on. I felt the board tilting; I knew I would fall, and I had a choice: stick my feet out and control my speed, or ride it out and see where I land. I ended up at the bottom of the hill in a less-than-fancy acrobatic somersault. Sand and laugh spilling from my mouth.

I love moments like these when something takes over in my spirit and I do a new thing I didn't think I ever would or could do-like trek through freezing cold waters to climb slippery rocks right up into a waterfall. It's such an empowering feeling to break out of your 'safe and comfy' zone and see what you're capable of!


Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
