|Ruby wakes up even earlier than I do.|
It's really easy for me to go solo, in all endeavors. I can run the pace I want, hike as far or as short as I want to, take breaks when I want to, not have to talk if I don't feel like it. It's freedom: I spend five days a week wrangling clients and hustling. It's nice to be alone sometimes.
|I met my friends at the lake below. Snow prevented us from going to our intended destination, over an untrailed pass.|
Also, people like to sleep in, even if they go into the tent ten hours earlier. They don't appreciate a sunrise chatterbox. I've learned to get up quietly and go for a morning hike.
|The always gorgeous Hobo Lake. I had to climb snowfields to get here. In late July!|
