This past August, I had the opportunity to work with a great veteran organization called Sheep Dog. The assignment was to climb Mount Kilimanjaro with a team and document the good the bad the ugly and everything in between. This beautiful mountain didn't disappoint and what made it even better was the incredible team I was blessed with documenting. These are the guys you want in your corner for every situation life throws at you. On August 10, 2021 @ 8:15 am and at 19,342 feet, my world was forever changed and a brotherhood was forged with teamwork, trust, sweat, blood, tears, perseverance, faith, courage and so much more. We started with a team of 12 and ended up with 9 of us summiting.
This bucket list adventure was one of the hardest things I have ever accomplished and photographed at the same time.
I started this journey on my knees grabbing the earth in my hands and asking God to walk with me on this journey grabbing my hand when I needed it. I also did the same thanking him on the top, and a final time when I stepped off. He was there the whole time, I truly felt him.
I hope you enjoy their Journey!
