Bears Ears mini series 1/3: Three years ago, in the spring, I went to Alaska with @liz_daley and spent two weeks snow camping on a glacier, hiking and climbing to earn our turns. Liz was a huge inspiration to me. She was one of the first female mountain guides I'd ever met, and she was an example for me of what I wanted to become. On that trip in AK, we talked about many things, including Indian Creek. She raved about the climbing there and encouraged me to take leadership with my climbing, to get strong, "carry the rope" and "get on the sharp end". After that trip, I spent weeks in Southern Utah, climbing desert towers and learning how to lead. #akgirls_way @patagonia_snow photo: @jaybeyerimaging #defendbearsears PS. That shower felt so good!
