Finished academy. Graduated college. Moved away from home. Finally I am living on my own in Colorado. I've been meaning to start writing again. This time not just trying to put up wordy blog posts, but incorporating some of my personal writings in to what I post here. This excerpt is from my first time hiking around in the backcountry near the camp I am currently working/living at. From the camp there is a beautiful view across the lake of the continental divide. I'll have to grab a picture of it. Anyways, one of the more distinct peaks is Sawtooth mountain. Not the tallest by far, only measuring up to 12,304 feet, The design of the peak and the constant reminder that it is there, really draw me to the summit. In these few pages, I recount my first hike along the trail towards my goal.
