I’m catching up on my adventure stories tonight, because frankly I’ve been packing it in this summer. Per my previous post, my good friend Dustin was in Missoula from August 16-22, and per our usual style, we packed it in. Highlights included rock climbing at Kootenai, floating the Clark Fork, and rad 3 day backpacking trip between Kootenai canyon and Big Creek Canyon- covering ~37 miles in ~48 hours, with a 6 mile technical ridge scramble in the middle. Dustin has a way of compelling me to step up and be a better version of myself in a way that few other people do- and he usually does it just by being himself. I’ll let the photos tell the story:
A huge thank you to my dear friend for making the trip out here, and continuing to be a driving force for many good things in my life.
