Today our guest contributor, Meg, combines her love for climbing, art and the community. She will be collecting images via email, Facebook or Insatgram using the hashtag #ConnectwithSmithRock, and then will transform those images into art. Get involved!
One of Meg’s previous pieces: a mixed media collection of maps, tickets, notes, and memories.
It was 2am on a Friday and I was just leaving the office. Coffee in hand, car packed and music blaring, I got on the highway with the windows rolled down and drove east. I was determined to get to camp like I promised. The Dollar Tree parking lot provided a great nap location and I had the car started again by sunrise. Physically I was exhausted, running on empty, and bubbling over with excitement as I awkwardly parked my Subaru on an incline next to our packed campsite. Success! I had made it in time for breakfast. These are my people. The folks I love to be around even if no one has showered in over a week. The guys and gals that share food, beverages, gear, laughter, rides, and stories around a campfire. The people that exemplify a spirit for adventure. These are climbers.
