"Marco? Polo!" turned to "Marco? Y.O.L.O.!" (You Only Live Once) and became an oft-repeated phrase on the trip, thanks to an inspiring InReach "quote-of-the-day" message from Rebecca's brother, Felix. Each of us sought to maximize the experience, to take advantage of every opportunity and just to live each day to the fullest in our own personal ways. A voyage of and through highs, lows, landscapes, people and emotion.
On this particular day, Ali and Rebecca just NAILED IT!!! Bluebird day, light packs, perfect snow conditions, great turns and rarified mountain air at 5500m. A great day to be alive and a reminder to YOLO!
