Most people have more needs than wants. That’s why they live the lives they do. But the world is run by those whose wants outstrip their needs.

Amor Towles, Rules of Civility: A Novel

My guides are lucky to have found such peace: their needs and wants are the same; their desires can satisfy their needs. I only hope to find the same.

Arriving at the John Gardner Pass. Sorry you can’t hear the commentary over the wind, but it’s not really much of anything, anyway 🙂 As I walk across the rocks there, we are approaching the side of the pass toward Grey Glacier, which is a HUGE mass of ice being fed my multiple surrounding glaciers. Awesome view, but we still had several hours worth of switchbacks and ladder climbing to arrive at camp for the night.
