2012 Elk Mountains Grand Traverse

(Be kind, this is my first post besides the 14W schtuff)

For anyone interested in an overnight 40mile, 7800ft, backcountry ski across the Elk Mtns from Crested Butte to Aspen, then you may enjoy this....
Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells, "CAN'T", but you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper, "can." And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.
