  The sun was just starting to peak out around the reddish rock. I pulled down the brim of my baseball cap to shade my eyes as rays of light shot out of the clouds and onto my path. The path around the base of Uluru was nearly empty in this section. Not many tourists [...]

Week In-Stagram Review Quarry Trail

6 Comments 27 June 2014

We climbed high into the mountains of Peru for this Instagram Quarry Trail week in review.  The air was so thin our bodies struggled to adjust and I found myself only being able to walk 30 steps before I had to stop as my heart was beating so fast and I couldn’t seem to get [...]

The View From My Rickshaw

14 Comments 22 May 2014

Only one team member can drive at a time during the Rickshaw Run, so that means half of the time you are a passenger.  As a passenger, the back seat wasn’t very comfortable, but somehow we managed to sleep, eat, drink, and backseat drive all from the rear seat.  A few days when I had [...]
