Couped up in Colorado without seeing the nature that makes this state so great has been crushing my moral. I need to get out of grand junction! I need to feel my lungs gasping for air. I need to be on the move!
I couldn’t get anyone to go with to take the short hike up Mt. Garfield today, actually, outside of work I don’t know anyone! I didn’t have much of a choice but to go myself. I woke up at 430am expecting to hop off super early to get some good pictures of the sun cresting over.
Negative on that! My body did not want to wake up, but after 10 snoozes later, I manage to drag my lifeless body off of my bed…by bed, I mean sleeping pad! This has been my bed for the past 3 weeks, an REI Lumina 40 on a blue pad on a hardwood floor. Took some getting used to, but it’s been pretty cozy. I didn’t expect to need this bag when I purchased it, but boy has it come in handy! (click to read more!)
