15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Craggin' in Ferry Medows, Cirque of the Unclimbables
This trip was one of a lifetime. On an expedition to the Northwest Territories to climb the infamous- Lotus Flower Tower, we also had a chance to explore the smaller rocks around our camp. The fluorescent hues of Ferry Medows which majestically surrounded our camp were simply spectacular. On this trip, I not only succeeded in summiting the two thousand foot Lotus Flower Tower but I also made strides in overcoming an illness that has affected me for over two decades. Multiple Sclerosis has become a serious motivator and reminder for me to keep on adventuring!
