  • I have a lot of ‘pretty’ photos from Sedona. Lots of beautiful views and shining moments and triumphant poses. But I made sure my husband also took this photo, because I wanted to share what the rest of my trip looked like: Three days of me clinging to one rock or another, in tears. Some of the hikes we did, like Doe Mountain, I pushed through and made it to the end (still crying). This was from Cathedral Rock, after I ultimately decided to head back down after making it 80% to the top. I had crawled most of the way up on my hands and knees, stopping every few feet to work up some more nerve. I stood at a flat spot for about 20 minutes while others filed past me, before I finally admitted to myself that I was done.
Cathedral Rock is only .6 miles to the top, and many people flew up without any problems. But if you have an issue with heights (or vertigo), it can be terrifying. There are a few places where you're just scaling tall smooth rock. I kept telling myself that the middle is really the worst part and once I got past this ravine it would be so easy, and the views would be SO worth it. But I knew in my bones I was done. The whole way down (scooting on my butt), I felt like a complete failure.
But here's the thing; you have to know your limits, and not just your physical capabilities - you have to listen to your mental limits. Don't put yourself in danger because other people think you can do something.
I told Chad to go ahead and finish and I'd wait for him. But he said no. He started walking down, took my hand, and said "we'll come back next year, and we'll finish it together."
So that's what I'm going to do. 🙌

  • You’ll never want to leave #Armenia after you experience people’s hospitality on our trails. Repost @armenian_geographic This woman saw a group of hikers who had just come down from the mountain and offered them warm, homemade bread. It was a very beautiful gesture.

  • 24 Days Until My Thru-Hike Begins: After 5 grueling days on the Triple Crown Loop in Virginia back in December I was almost finished with just Dragons Tooth to summit. Those 5 days I encountered rain, snow, 50 degree weather, freezing temperatures, a search party looking for a missing person, a news crew that gave me an interview, followed by being stuck behind that search party carrying the body of that mission person the last 2 miles of the hike. I want to go ahead and apologize to my Church Family for the language in the video but after 5 days of getting my butt kicked, I was feeling that high. I don’t care what anyone says, there is no drug in the world that gives you a better feeling than that. I don’t know how everyone else’s feels about hiking or climbing mountains but when I go out there and get to my destination I get the feeling of empowerment. Like I can do anything. That’s exactly how I felt in this video even though I wasn’t finished. This was only 37 miles long so imagine how I will feel when I get to Katahdin. I was also kicked out of one of the main Appalachian Trail Facebook groups because of this video. Thanks Mr Rick Hatcher! #japhethsjourney #appalachiantrail #hiker #hikes #hikers #hike #atprep #hikersofinstagram #at2019 #thetrek #trektheat #outdoordonkey
