The first adventure for 2015 was to the pristine alpine waters of Lake Tahoe. This trip was more of an R&R for the new year because the end of last year was a blur. December especially was amazing. I felt alive. So many new influences in my life. Special people who push me outside my comfort zone, yet with a real sense of comfort and safety. Adventures that test my courage and spirit. I gained an amazing personal connection. I gained a new sense of happiness. I gained a new thirst for adventure. And I chose to leave self-doubt and fear behind. I hope to never find them again.
