After months of (ongoing!) ankle recovery at indoor walls, we’ve navigated our way around the snowy Spring days and managed to find ourselves some time in the sun; time to finally test out the mountain of gear we have stashed away.
Woodland walks, stress, & the fear that comes with trying
Recently, it’s been very apparent that I am stressed.
