We’re piecing it together for now, for the love of climbing and the freedom of the road, but it comes with sacrifices. Yet there’s a freshness about life on the road, one that I worry I’ll miss in more stable chapters of my future life. So for now, I’m on the road, returning to the Black Canyon with Whitney and her Subaru following behind. ?The stopper hanging from my rearview mirror bats against the glass and I head down the bumpy road, towards the light. Down a bumpy road, towards the light.
