The Gulf

I’d take the coast over the mountains any day.  I just tend to be in the mountains more than the ocean due to my profession.  It was an hour and a half away.  Resistance was futile.  I pulled myself away from my family for a day and headed down to the gulf coast just to see the ocean before heading north again.

A Season Well Spent

014_12a

Oh Red River Gorge.  My home crag… and now one of my homes.  I’ve been living in Kentucky on and off for almost six years now, and climbing at the Red for five.  When I ended up at the Miguel’s Pizza campsite in the fall of 2015 I figured I would be there for a couple months and then move on.  I ended up spending the last year entirely in Kentucky, and it’s getting harder and harder to leave every time.

Here are some moments from my season in the Red:
