•What an uphill

•Yesterday I climbed Mount Verstovia in Sitka, Alaska. •What an uphill grind. •Going solo, I had hours of thinking/reflecting. •There were ropes, cables, steps made from trees,roots, and planks. •Obstacles were cleared or cut by those who’d gone before me. •Just like in life. •I’ve really come to appreciate and love those who have been on the same path as me and made it to the top. •You are the ones that make the grind worth it. •You are the trail blazers. •I’m so grateful for you. 💕🙏🏻⚓️ @sober_skies @leslie1877

•Mount Verstovia. • 2 1/2 hours of a solid stair climb up. •The last 1/4 was just grit and determination. •If I were insane, I could’ve kept going and climbed that mountain right there. It’s called Arrowhead. •Yeah, no. • Going down was very strategic. Foot placement was critical. Brutal on the knees and a misstep could twist a knee/ankle or send you tumbling. •I’ve hiked lot of places and this was, hands-down one of the toughest and one of the most rewarding. •Time to put my feet in a sink of ice. @leslie1877

This hike complete

What are some things that help keep you motivated? This hike completely kicked my ass the other day and def reminded me why I love to be healthy and in shape! It also made me want to completely get back on track again! I’m one of those who struggles to always stay on track and vacations and events can really throw me off sometimes! But I’m motivated to get back to it and ready to start feeling good again. 💜 that view at the top tho is so amazing and I’m still proud of myself for making it to the very top of arrowhead! I remember 10 years ago when I first tried to climb Verstovia I quit at like maybe half way lol. 🙈 . . . #selfcare #hiking #weightloss #healthy #fitness #mountverstovia #basscon #hardstyle #sitka #alaska #sitkaalaska #islandliving #summer

Peak 1 - Mount Verstovia | Peak 2 - Arrowhead We debated hiking to the second peak (behind us in photo 9), because of the cloud cover (photo 2 - we couldn’t even see the peak), but I wanted experience the challenging trail, so we went. We got above the cloud line and then they all of a sudden they just cleared out... couldn’t have timed it better. I told Clint “this day is my love language” (photos in order)

Difficult Hike. 2.7miles/2.5hrs (OneWay). 3,300ft Elevation. Very Steep trail with many switchbacks. Tread in places is poor and very wet, slippery and muddy. Numerous log steps and rocky/rooty sections. Some ropes and cables to grab in some of the more exposed places but WE DID IT! Never a dull moment with this guy Dylan Mense. 😘🧗🏼‍♂️ #RussiansLogs #Hike #Alaska #MountVerstovia #Sitka
