climbing my mountain

day 2, I am back. back from the arms of the Yolla Bolly wilderness.  Back from a place where I left my fears, overcame my story and dreamed of a new beginning.  Realizing so much in this tiny moment of now. The peaceful place of love.

I packed my bag for an 8 day journey into the woods with 12 amazingly beautifully spirited goddess womyn. Little did I know we would transform with 13 moon woman, hiking trails, swimming rivers, jumping rocks, singing songs, laughing, spirit walking, embracing each other in the deepest of ways, holding out our mirrors of reflection, and sharing our smiles and tears. I embraced falling in love with myself. Loving with such deep compassion and shedding all that does not serve me.

I am ever grateful for this experience. I'll let the pictures speak the words I am speechless to write in this moment.

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

GORGEOUS! pure indeed. i want to go to that swimming hole, please tell me you didn't jump from that height though?! you ladies know how to do backpacking right, that many days and the food still looks delicious. although when you're out there, it all tastes good, i love that feeling. what an experience to do this epic journey with your girlfriends. everyone in the group has such kind and beautiful faces. i loved poring over all these photos, thank you for sharing with us wanderlusty souls!
