    I have done plenty of challenging things in my life, but a few of those things were harder than others. Like a thirty mile hike. Right now you probably think I’m crazy for hiking up mountains for thirty miles! But I will never forget the experience of the beauty of the Sawtooth mountains and spending time with my grandpa. Also, I will never forget the massiveness of the three ridges we had to climb up. That was definitely not my favorite part of the hike. The hike started out at a lake called…

In my life, I have encountered my own “seven summits” which parallel as challenges I have faced throughout the course of my lifetime.
