For many years now I've slowly been trying to get at the source of what makes humans happy and why so many of us ignore the simple truth that possessions and the pursuit of "more" brings only the cravings for even more, resulting in feelings of frustration and endless restlessness. It's incredibly ironic to me that as the richest and most free people in human history, we have enslaved ourselves to consumerism and the opinions of others. Why are we so eager to give up our freedom?! Even good things can become crutches in our lives. Climbing mountains for the sake of accumulating "more" is an example of this in my own life. I am slowly learning to be content with much less. There's always going to be summits and experiences that I won't be able to do. So what?

Enjoy every moment for its own sake. Enjoy life for its own sake. Enjoy every mountain as if it's your last one. Quit chasing so-called goals and just enjoy the people and experiences that come across your path as you travel through life with all its ups and downs. https://experiencelife.com/article/the-art-of-enough/

Brazeau, Mount

Mount Brazeau has been on my radar for many years already. I wasn't in a huge rush to do it however, because I knew it was a relatively easy 11,000er and could be done in almost any conditions and in any season, from full-on winter conditions to mid-summer ones. Or could it? Ben and I set out on July 30th 2015 from the Poboktan Creek trailhead to find out how Mount Brazeau and its neighboring peaks would behave in an extremely dry year in the Canadian Rockies.
