    The obstacles this climber faced are no different than ones we face in our 'normal' lives. Roadblocks, hesitation, fear of the unknown, notions that certain things are beyond one's reach, self-doubt. Smith rock state park in Central Oregon is a globally renowned climbing destination. I witnessed this woman climb right when I needed a burst of inspiration to continue pursuing my own passions and watched for 30 minutes as she pushed through fear to achieve her goals. Note: this was taken in 2017!

    Fantastic use of silhouette Caitlin. I love it. And when paired with your caption, I really love this photo. I hope every time you see this photo, it reminds you of how you felt for those 30 minutes.
