We become comfortable with all the functions of the human body out here. Girls grow hairy legs, guys grow beards. We both just have to adjust to the added warmth and new look. Body odor is non-offensive and barely even noticed out here. The worse someone smells, the more you empathize with them because they are the ones who truly have to suffer with it. Fingernails collect dirt and dowstairs gets itchy. And despite fighting this belief my entire life, I have finally admitted to the fact that girls do, dare I say, poop.

I looked out from my first big mountain in good weather today and the two days worth of uphill hiking to get here was totally worth it.
