If you're not questioning why you like to wake up at an ungodly hour to subject yourself to intense physical torture at high altitudes, then you aren't doing it right.

It is my favorite time of year. The mountains certainly beckon with their snow-smeared peaks, budding wildflowers, and green alpine grasses. Alpine lakes still have that glacial coolness about them. Life flourishes. However, slogging up to the top of a…

Most women feel this huge pressure to look good at all times regardless of what’s going on. This usually means we sacrifice comfort in the name of fashion. Two words: Screw that. What's the point of suffering in the name of “looking good.” You can look great wearing something that doesn’t require pain. Tell someone who's spent 11 straight days hiking that their shoes don't make their legs look sexy and they are likely to tell you to "piss off."

My eyes flash open. I roll over and check the clock. 15 minutest before my alarm goes off. My heart starts to race. Dread sets in. The thought of putting my foot down off the side of the bed to start another day at the office floods my soul with anxiety.  It doesn't matter how hard I wish, I simply cannot stop the passage of time. The inevitable will arrive. The second I put that foot down I vow to myself that today will be different. Today I would leave my career in pursuit of my passions.

The famed 60 foot walls of Shelf Road stood like waterfalls trapped in time in the distance. The moon cast sinister shadows among the canyon. Nervously I eyeballed the challenge.

There is something about climbing rocks that keeps bringing me back. The challenge of facing fears never comes easily. Climbing teaches us to keep pushing back on that fear. The harder you push the more you realize what you are truly capable of.

Who else gets down with the dawn? If you haven't seen the sunrise in the mountains, put it on your bucked list! Here's why!

There's a special breed who live for dawn. While you're asleep we tip-toe out of bed. We yearn for the unspeakable hour. A 2am wakeup call means nothing. There's anticipation in the air when we lace up our boots by headlamp; our foggy breath obscuring our…

You've been wearing the same clothes for nearly 10 days now. You aren't sure the last time you've actually taken off your long underwear. Yesterday? Or maybe 3 days ago? What day is it anyway? It would be considered a crime to ask someone to smell your…

You’re surrounded by peaks so steep they look like cartoons. Ice hangs precariously from their tops, as if a toddler dolloped icing about the landscape. Everywhere you look the jagged knife edges of the Himalaya stare back menacingly. You peer cautiously…

A lot of people opt for a long layover in Dubai - but is it really worth it?

Over the past 60 years Dubai managed to push its way onto the traveler's radar. Boasting the world's tallest building, opulence, and luxury that will make you feel like royalty. Dubai: the Las Vegas of the Middle East. But is that really what's really…
