I love adventure and am very inspired by those who follow a life of adventure! I met Sabra back at the start of 2013. I wanted a climbing guide for Joshua Tree National Park, and found Cliffhanger guides to be highly recommended by Yelp. When I met Sabra, I loved her and her story. She was about to leave on an adventure to paddle the Amur river through Mongolia and Russia with 3 other women, the expedition was called Nobodys River Project. The film from the trip has gone worldwide and next week on April 2nd is screening here in DC at National Geographic, http://events.nationalgeographic.com/special-events/2015/04/02/nobodys-river/ How awesome is that?
I was really pumped to get back to Joshua tree, see her again, get some epic climbing in and meet Seth (Sabra’s husband and co-owner of Cliffhanger Guides). Earlier this month, after some time in Vegas, I needed some fresh air, rented a car and headed to the desert.
Joshua Tree is like no where else in the world. It has this simplicity and peace to it. Beautiful rocks ready to be climbed out in the middle of fields and field of these crazy unique trees. This was my third trip out, and definitely will not be my last. For two days, I climbed with Cliffhanger Guides in the desert, then after climbing until my fingers hurt, I sat back over a giant burger (with special sauce) at the local pub, and heard more stories of adventures from Sabra, Seth and their friends. These two, the climbing and my little adventure with them in Joshua Tree was just unforgettable. Here are some of my favorite pictures.
