September 24th, 2015 @ 12:28pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

It was like a scene from an action movie or survivalist reality show. The clouds had rolled in and the first hesitant raindrops began to fall. I had to put away my camera and my phone, which I had used to document our 6km hike along unnamed ridges, peaks, and grassy alpine slopes, at 7,000ft […]
