Nearly a half year later, we’re still cramming in coffee shop dates into two incredibly busy schedules to bring our project to life. From returning back to Lone Pine to interview Bobby, to writing grant proposals in the car on the way to the mountains, and even a few FaceTimes across international borders - we have laid the groundwork for this project. Since that late October summit, we have spent every single day dedicated to making this dream a reality.
Here’s the plan: this summer, we will climb the tallest peaks in six states: northern California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado await us. Along the way, we will be spending time in the communities that surround these mountains and gathering the stories of the people who make up these small towns. While we cannot yet even begin to anticipate how it will feel to stand atop the highest points of these six states as we simultaneously weave together the narratives of all those whose paths we cross, we know that this project will forever change our lives. The story of Small Towns to Summits is the story of two young and passionate women who aspire to share their personal journeys as well as the various voices we gather along the way. We hope that our story continues to inspire others to chase their passions and live their lives without glancing in the rearview mirror.
