No other word can describe this hastily thrown together trip of four women fast-packing 47+ miles through the Uintas. This adventure included altitude, a 13er, 4 passes, 2 looooooong marshes, countless lakes.... and happy, happy girls who loved the experience despite the expected physical hardships of carrying a 15lb+ pack running/hiking/slogging at altitude for more than 20 hours.

|our first view of red castle, after many hours with the pack, we were happy to take them off for a minute|
This was one of those adventures with so many moments, memories, and fun that I have yet to mull over the stories and savor the memories.
|I love this girl|
|the happiest I've ever been on a run. technical trail, sunset glowing off the rocks, and the promise of an icy swim at the end.|

|beautiful women, inside and out.|
Sometimes opportunities come, perhaps with people you've never met (this was my first time meeting the lovely Sarah M) and the ensuring adventures form a life-long memory.
This, this was one of those adventures.
