Backpacking Bucket List

It’s no surprise to anyone that my favorite place to be is out in the mountains. They hold a bit of magic for me; there’s no where else I feel such a strong sense of self and paradoxically, a sense of smallness. This summer, I’m lucky to be traveling to the Pacific Northwest to get some dayhiking in, as well as Taiwan. In the future, I hope to make the most of my 20s and camp and hike all over the world — maybe someday even do something as ridiculous as run a marathon in Antarctica!

This collections page was just a fun way of dreaming up ideas and to not lose those dreams as “reality” sets in. I know if I don’t make it happen, I’ll just put it off until it’s too late. Here’s to adventure!

Included are some pictures from the process of drawing the page, followed by the final product.
