Always a favorite to return to. Located in the high desert of central Oregon sits Smith Rock- known for some of the best sport climbing in the US. This incredible place holds so many lasting memories for me. 366 days ago, I had just completed a 25 mile backpacking trip. Without hesitation (or sleep) I booked it straight to Smith Rock for the 2017 Solar Eclipse. We drove all through the night to arrive bright & early the next day before the park filled. I sat with @clynnnn02 below the towering Morning Glory walls on a huge boulder. We watched the moon make its way high into the sky, until it began to cross directly between Earth & the sun. Everything became quiet, as if the world & time had completely stopped. The moon covered the sun & we experienced totality. It was the most serene, yet eerie feeling I’ve ever had. The chills return to my body just writing about it.
I’ve never met anyone who can make me laugh the way you do. Half the reason I just couldn’t keep you out of my life. Cheers to our friendship, forgiveness & dabs 🌬😊
what a pretty little alpine lake. it’s unnamed but i could think of plenty. we made the descent down to the shore and the water was beautiful, blue & inviting. to our surprise, the glacial fed lake was quite warm- strange considering the lake’s source is the emmons, the largest glacier in the lower 48.
