It was a stunningly fantastic hike with breathtaking mountain views and crystalline mountain lakes.  The trail was clocked at 38.3 miles and 12,000+ ft of elevation gain on the AllTrails App, but Drew and I ended up recording around 53 miles with 13,009 ft of elevation gain.

As straightforward as it may seem, the meaning behind “Nature Is Never Closed” can be interpreted in many ways. For some, it may be that the outdoors are always physically or geographically accessible to them, others may see it as no human has the right to say that another person cannot enter Nature since it is our collective open Earth.    To me, this means that there is always potential to have a significant connection with Nature, no matter where you are.
