Early in the summer, I bought the Buff. Little did I know that it would become my trademark piece of mountain garb.
This is what I look like every time I hike: high ponytail, crooked smile, and the Buff.
It’s ridiculous. And I love it. People ask about it on every hike I find myself on – which means that I am officially a backcountry trendsetter.
I got my fill of the outdoors this weekend. I climbed a 14er one day (thus reaching my goal of 6 14ers this summer, hey-ooooo!), and a 13er the next. Yesterday, August 29, I watched people in shorts and tank tops ski down a glacier.
Colorado is bizarre and beautiful. I’m lucky to live here. And I’m so thankful for all of the time I’ve been able to spend outside this summer.
