Getting to a place like this is more than just going for a hike to me. Backpacking to Mirror Lake in the Eagle Cap Wilderness has been on my mind for years. Experiencing places like this is an opportunity I make happen. As I stood here just taking this whole scene in, I could hear a few rockslides in the distance. Our world is literally, slowly crumbling and fading. We have the opportunity to preserve it, if we make it a priority. I travel and adventure my way through it because I know it will all change sooner or later.
