Josh and I woke up early to meet at the East Palisades in Georgia. We trekked our way down narrow pathways and overgrown roots to find the cave inlet I'd discovered with my brother earlier that summer. I was quite terrified of pulling the smoke triggers, but we watched the beautiful colored smoke breathe the forest alive. There was jumping from trees, climbing gargantuous rocks, and so much dancing. We were so exhausted on the hike back, but it was so good to catch up with this old friend.
