Stairs to heaven | by Artem Verkhoglyad | Website.
looks all cool and shit, but when im actually at such a beautiful place, i only notice nature on those occasional times i pause to look. and it’s beautiful. but usually, im sweaty, sun-beaten, exhausted, drinking some water, not wanting to carry the 2-liter water bottle, and watching my step, one by one, damn it’s high
i was going to comment something similar when i reblogged this but decided not to until i saw ^ the text. i remember being on these trails and really only thinking about getting down the path “when does it end?” “wow that’s a lot of stairs” and thinking how there has to be something more to this, how this trail isn’t that adventurous or grand at all. i’m envisioning one climb in particular, that time they charged us an entrance fee just because someone built some stairs, after the big waterfall and the rain. if I could redo that climb, after seeing this picture, it’s 10,000 reblogs of adventure and wanderlust, would i feel differently doing it again?
