WE DID THE RUBY RANGE TRAVERSE!!! 🤘🏼💪🏼
With bellies and backpacks full of burritos, we were on trail before sunrise with no idea of what we were getting ourselves into. 15 miles, 9 peaks, 6500 ft vert gain and 12 hours later we were drinking victory beers at the car! We climbed, crawled, scooted, hiked, trotted and sang our way across the Ruby mountains. We saw a family of mountain goats, elk bathing in a vibrant blue alpine lake, so many grasshoppers and resilient flowers, the most beautiful basins and despite the smoke, views for days. We scrambled over loose shale and navigated questionable ridges. We greeted each mountain with awe and consideration; a couple were sweet and welcoming but most were unforgiving and demanding. This was the hardest, scariest, craziest and most incredible goal I’ve ever accomplished. I loved every single minute of it and words cannot express my gratitude and love for my adventure partner, support system, badass human and photographer: @sierrahalverson 💗👑🌯🐐🦌⛰
I am so fucking proud of us!!!
