Sittin on top of the world.

So while the rest of you were lying around on the couch in your underwear, hypnotized by the Olympics, my sister and I decided to climb a mountain. These photos are further proof I live in the best place on earth.

This was a our pump-up song before the hike and also our celebration song after the hike:

Cat Stevens – Can’t Keep It In

Waterfall!

Me and my backpack!

My sister and a friend!

Beautiful British Columbia, living up to its name!

    Damn I am SOOO jealous. That looks amazing. How far is that from where you actually live?Oh and Cat Steven’s is awesome. Great pump up song!

    it’s about 1.5hrs from where i live. pretty lucky, i think everyone here in vancouver takes it for granted. yea that last photo is a quick photoshop job, i took about 5 or 6 photos for a full 360 panorama from the top of the mountain from the same place where someone took the photo of my sister and i.

    and ya Cat Stevens is the BEST.

    Yo Jeff, photos look amazing man.

    We just did a trip in the Adirondacks, Upstate New York’s answer to British Columbia haha.

    From your pictures it looks like your mountains are slightly more amazing but check out the pics from out trip you will defiantly appreciate them if your a fan of skipping the Olympics for hiking a mountain.

    ha, nope that’s really the name. i had to double check, too.

  • Kyle

    Is that a chief? I mean the view looks like it from the panorama but the others I can’t really tell!

    The next step is “The Grind”

    I know you vowed never to do it, but just do it already.

    Doing The Grind after The Chief would be such a step down. it would literally be like winning the lottery and then getting kicked in the nuts.
