I was fully present on summit day. I was so focused on my breath and moving one step at a time that I was completely embodied by this sunrise. My emotions walking along the crater rim from Stella Point to Uhuru Peak were incredibly powerful! I couldn't stop crying from the beauty that was surrounding me. That feeling will be forever imprinted with me as it was one of those days where I felt truly alive. I experienced every moment (whether I was feeling nauseous, dizzy or elated) with heightened sensitivity. Just amazing!
