I believe the Avett Brothers said it best in one of my all time favorite songs, "Salina." And they were correct, you can leave Carolina....but you will return.
We have come full circle and I am now an employee of Push America once again and could not be more blessed. I am doing what I love and am truly thankful. The past year and a half was one great year and I wish everyone had the chance to see the country the way I did. One for the record books.
In the midst of moving, I did manage to cram in a few list items and I would like to share.
First, St. Mary's Glacier with Hazel
Hazel was passing through and we shot up to the mountains to hike around the glacier and take a dip in some refreshing glacier melt. You will notice me dipping my head into a comforting little stream. What you can't see is that it is about 5 feet from the mouth of the glacier. Therefore, water temp is in the 30s I would estimate. Luckily the lake was quite a bit warmer....maybe 45-50 if I had to guess. Good times.Second, Great Sand Dunes with KnottsEric and I made a quick trip down to the dunes for one last bro-mantic weekend before I made the trip east. It is hard to tell but the dunes rise 500 feet from the base to the summit. Climbing 500 feet of sand is no easy task. But, what we experienced in difficulty was met with equal amazement. It is hard to believe something like that exists in Colorado. It is truly a bucket list item.Third, marathon training in the mountains with Dave and the BaconsWe ventured up to one of my favorite spots for a weekend of hill training for our upcoming marathon. 13ish miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway is something everyone should get the chance to do. We rewarded ourselves with some quality camp food and a trip to Asheville for some celtic music and Staci's first Guiness.Finally, Cameron still knows how to wakeboard...check out this video.
