I came into the trip thinking that it wouldn't be as difficult as it was, but it was really challenging! I am thankful for such a great group of people who were so helpful and patient with my altitude sickness! I am thankful also for Manuel, our tour guide who was encouraging throughout the whole trip.
It was such a beautiful yet challenging trip. After the first two days I didn't think I would make it. There were times I thought I would just quit, but making it to the top of Dead Woman's pass, made me feel like I could do anything. It was definitely the most mentally and physically taxing trip I have ever done, but I am thankful for getting through it with a great family.
