Oh yes, today’s post is a double whammy of mountainous treats. First on your plate, enjoy a short write-up posted on Mountain Khaki’s ‘Built For The Mountain Life‘ blog about Tally Rock Gym’s March 19 ‘Save the South’ bouldering competition. Check out a snippet of the article, written by yours truly.
RECAP: Tally Rock Gym “Save the South” – “Each year, as the damp Tallahassee winter blooms into a sultry springtime, the Tallahassee Rock Gym in Florida’s panhandle hosts an annual fundraiser bouldering competition to benefit the Southeastern Climbers Coalition. This year’s event, entitled “Save the South,” was a major success for Talahassee’s sole rock-climbing facility.
Thanks to the support of sponsors like Mountain Khakis, the fundraiser collected morethan $1,600 through donations, raffle ticket sales and entry fees to directly benefit the SCC. In addition to raising money for one of Tally Rock Gym’s most beloved organizations, the event presented a great day of bouldering and community bonding for climbers of the panhandle.”

Additionally, I wanted to post a time lapse video that has gone viral this week. Shot by Terje Sorgjerd, the 3 minute video captures beautiful scenery from a peak in Spain, and shows off wonderful images of the Milky Way. If you need a relaxing break from work, or just want to get amped up on earth, watch this:
The video got me all hot and heavy with anticipation for my (and Niko’s) upcoming road trip to Denver/Moab/Yosemite. I cannot wait to ditch my normal routine and live on the road for the entire month of May. It’s going to be beautiful, and naturally, you’ll get to relive it all on The Morning Fresh!
