Back in 91. I got a series goin here...
Two tomahawks from my favorite butcher, @thefarmersrail. You guys are killing it!
Mt. Rainier pt. 3. - The Summit in View. @bbritny and I hiked 3.5 miles up an elevation gain of 3,400 feet for shots 1 and 2. When the clouds finally gave us just a slight break. While this wasn't the end of our trip, for me it was the most memorable. We really pushed our out-of-shape bodies up that hill and tested ourselves. I was wearing my nearly broken in boots, carrying about a 20 lb day pack, and as a smoker, it was hard. It was so worth the views we found, though. Best part was that at the top of our trail, we had to veer off in search of a viewing point; it wasn't "provided" for us. I'm not a spiritual man, but looking up at such a giant can make you feel incredibly small, and incredibly weak. Pretty powerful and quite motivating. #mtrainier #summit #volcano #mtrainiernationalpark #washington #tumalo #gocamp #nationalparks #rampartridge #pacificnw
