There’s something very calming about the prayer flags in Nepal, a light breeze sending them fluttering in the wind.

Over the edge. The edge is the most terrifying part, for once you’re over the edge it’s nothing but air and freedom.

Another zip through the Alvord desert with some of my favorite folks.

When we strive to be better than we are everything around us becomes better too. ~ The Alchemist
It’s hard to consider all the things happening around us today and over the past years and look inwards towards change. It’s a fine line to walk, having empathy while asserting your stance, having kindness while not allowing others to dictate your path. Many people have offered their lives to get to where we are today, and while it often feels like we’re going in circles, two steps back for every one forward, we have to keep trying to move forward.

Last week I joined @backcountry for the first of hopefully many ‘Rendezvous’ events in the mountains outside Salt Lake. Camping, hiking, fly fishing, mountain biking, yoga, and community, and can’t forget the delicious drinks by @drinkhighwest .

We had the chance to also test out a ton of new gear from Backcountry and Stoic, including the center pole style tents we stayed in.

Memorial Day is upon us and @backcountry is having a huge sale. Be sure to swoop up anything on your wish list, and if it doesn’t make the sale, use code WILLIE15 for 15% off your first purchase at! (exclusions apply ) #findyourbackcountry

37 years, it seems like so long but also has flown by. As they go on, I find myself seeking out new things, new phases, but also being more content with settling in to my skin. Friends and family are more important than ever, and I am working on respecting and giving time to them. Life is a constant opportunity to learn and grow, and I’ll take those chances every time I can. Here’s to another year, and with smiles as big as I’ve had recently probably a couple more laugh lines.

Sitting here with the Bugaboos on my mind. It’s the potential for more trips like these in the future that gets me out of bed and running up hills to train, using the hang board in Ruby between emails, and organizing life so that it can become a reality.

Just pulled this image of my pal @jamesbarkman out of the archives. Mountaineer, van dweller, and also a rad human who’s currently in Ukraine documenting the war. Glad to know you friend.

I met @stevendimmitt years ago at Smith Rock in Bend. Since then, he’s left his engineering job and started the @thenuggetclimbing podcast. Passions become pursuits, pursuits become life, moments become years. Proud of you pal, looking forward to climbing together again soon!
