"The mind that perceives the limitation is the limitation" - Buddha

In two days I cycled 260km, hiked 10km, and gained 2325m in elevation to sleep next to a glacier. I did this on my two days off from cycling 300km/week. Point is, if you want something, do not ever believe you can’t do it. I wasn’t born with strong legs, I’ve just never given up, always pushed myself, and always looked back to see how far I just came. Enjoy the burn and you’ll get there.

Mt Baker’s mountain meadows. The far peak on the right way in the back are the Golden Ears in Canada, grew up on the slopes of them, it was neat to see them from a different country.

This little marmot guy introduced himself as Earl to me. I thought he looked more like a Maximillian but in any case he was quite hospitable to let me sleep next his home. His home is wonderfully placed. To the northwest you can see prominent Canadian peaks and at night time after the magnificent sunset you can see the lights of Vancouver. You should meet Earl, he’s very friendly and has lots of friends.

This was my morning view next to Coleman glacier as the sun was just starting to tickle the ice. I cycled 134km, hiked 5km, and gained 1840m in elevation to get to this view. When you push yourself to the max you tend to have very deep sleeps and in doing so you sometimes forget where you are..I woke up, opened the door and saw this, then couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. Total tranquility among such natural destructive forces among this heap of ice.

Zero dollar campsite with a million dollar view right beside Coleman glacier on Mt Baker. My only neighbours were a family of marmots and oh boy do those guys party like animals.

This is Mt Baker, the glacier draped volcano in Washington state that can be clearly seen from my house 130km away in Canada. You have to go here. Heliotrope ridge trail is a 5km hike with everything you’d want to see in a hike. Canadian mountain views, waterfalls everywhere, big trees, friendly marmots, delicate wild flowers juxtaposed against the raw beauty of a moaning and groaning glacier, crazy sunsets and crazy moonrises that light up the ice, and the freaking milky way! I saw a freaking shooting star from my tent! The only thing that’s missing maybe is magma. Mmmmmmagma.

Plop!

If you never looked down, you’d never know what you’re capable of. I say climb to great heights, get scared, and come out stronger.
