Worth, You are magical and…
Worth,

You are magical and lovely. And particularly magical and particularly lovely for donating to my Big City Mountaineers fundraiser!

I finished this madness on September 29th, and I'm back in town! While I'm mostly just trying to live in the moment - since it includes things like pillows and toilets that are not just a hole in the ground - I can't help but look back on the trip and how much harder it was at the end than I thought it'd be. Your donation helped me keep pushing through the cold, rain, and hail, all the way to Canada. Hopefully, the trips that Big City Mountaineers facilitates will inspire some of those young'uns to try the trek themselves someday. A girl can dream, right?

Seriously though, you're helping to get urban, at-risk teens into the backcountry, giving them a second to breathe, to collect themselves, before heading back into the fray. People who travel, who move, often get a better sense of the bigger picture: it opens their minds to possibilities beyond what they know. You're affording these young adults the opportunity to both broaden their perspectives and give them a chance to focus on themselves away from others who police their bodies, tell them who they should be and how. Thank you so much for giving them a moment just to be in the glory of our wild spaces.

I'm going to do New Year's Postcards with fun/silly pictures from the hike, and I'd love to send you one! I don't think I have your address, so if you like, send it on over to browngirlonthepct@gmail.com!

And, a little sooner than that, let's catch up if you're still in town!

Hope this finds you well,
--Amanda
