This compelling journey truly began months prior, still in the midst of planning. I found myself incredibly nervous anticipating the potential struggles I was about to endeavour. Little did I know how easily it would all fall into place.

The adventures had by our tight knit group will surely never come again, nor be illustrated by any words or photographs. My preconceived notions of loneliness and heartache disappeared during introductions. Surrounding oneself with wanderers that share your passion is comparable to the overwhelming sensation one gets from the breathtaking view at the top of St. Mary’s peak. It will be sad to leave the position I am currently in, but depart with a head full of consciousness and a heart filled with blossomed friendships.

Be true to your work, your word, and your friend.
Henry David Thoreau
