@outdoorwomen editorial mentor @gracexplorations story 4/4: I was searching for a crag close to my home in Salt Lake City. Turning a corner, I saw a waterfall, wildflowers + remains of last season's snowpack. My joy doubled by finding my climb right next to the ice.

We find ourselves in a great balancing act between anticipating what is known and accepting what is unknown."
