I'm leaving for my next trip to Patagonia with a calm mind, and rejuvenated spirit. After living in a tent for seven months, Jess and I moved to the big city of Denver. It's completely opposite of what had become 'normal' in my life, and it has been a healthy experience.
I can count on one hand the number of times I have gone climbing since I moved back to Colorado, and I can honestly say that I am happy about that. I worked extremely hard to get better at climbing in Yosemite, and taking this break is exactly what needed to happen. I get burnt out, I lose psyche, and I really dislike climbing at certain times. I'm learning that these are natural emotions for me, and I now listen to these feelings because I can't necessarily control them.
Climb if you want to, do something else if you don't. Go out every day and do what ignites creativity and makes you smile. Enjoy the photos:
