Summit at Sunrise

In 2007, I went to Tokyo for the first time. I stayed with my friend in her tiny apartment. A wooden walking stick that had burned symbols on it was perched in a rare untouched corner. When asked, she said it was a walking stick that she used when climbing Mt Fuji. Little did I […] More

It’s summer and the warm weather should give you more than an excuse to get outside and get active. And while summers’ sugary treats (ice cream and popsicles) are tempting – they don’t serve us the well when we need the energy over a longer period of time such as on a hike or a […] More
