Austria: Overcome a Fear With Much Reward

Today was absolutely awesome. I went on a challenging hike. I was not challenged physically but mentally. I have learned recently that your mental strength is just as important as your physical strength. On a knife edge path i walked, with a snow loaded face on one side, and seemingly infinite path of rock on the other, I found strength. With help from a friend guiding me into the unknown, we made it to the top. 

The reward was overcoming my fear, and a beautiful face full of powder! Yeah! 
I finished the day off with a relaxing massage and a great book. Training for the comp isn't so bad.

My hope is that everyone is out there taking risks, overcoming fears, and living life to the fullest.

 Chat soon:) I hope you enjoy the pics!

Could not have made it through the crux of the climb with out Lolo.

I made it! On top of the world!

Our plant ceases to amaze me.
