Once upon a time, two girls saw a picture of an amazing lake on top of a mountain. After some research, they discovered that the trail to reach it was roughly 5 miles. Deeming this a reasonable task, they dedicated a whole day to the hike. About 3 miles into it, they found themselves knee deep in snow, breaking its surface with nearly every step. They continued to push through, caught in the middle of a situation so miserable it was comedic. After 5 hours of hiking, and after realizing they’d never make it up and back before dark, they threw in the towel and what felt like a million hours later, returned to the trailhead. .
Spoiler alert: those two girls were @_beclee and I, and these are some shots from our woodland disaster. I mean, adventure.
