I've never been a believer in love at first sight. Even as a kid I knew that sort of wishful l thinking only existed in fairytales and bad romantic comedies. However, love at first sight is the only way I can describe my experience climbing in Fontainebleau. Climbing the sloping sandstone of Font has always been a dream of mine, and I couldn't shake the feeling that the stone wouldn’t live up to the high expectations I had unintentionally built up in my head. Instead, boulder strewn forest was everything I could have wanted and then some, as if it was created just for me. The only thing more I could have asked for was more time there with all my new friends, four days was definitely not enough to explore all Fontainebleau has to offer.
Thank you to the US Adaptive Team for taking me and welcoming me to the family, René-Paul Eustache for being the most amazing host and guide, Pierre Boisson for putting a beautiful roof over our many heads, Ronnie, Mo, and Brian for all the rides, and everyone for making the trip as fun and unforgettable as possible! Au Revior!
(I have more photos of everyone, but do to the amount of editing for each picture I couldn't post process them all! I'm off to Yosemite for the weekend, but I'll share a link to all the photos when I get back!)
