It was my first time that I was in so much of snow. It was also my first time I was on a completely solo trip. More than anything, this trip to me was a challenge. I knew it was not going to be easy, I knew I did not have the best and sufficient gear at my disposal, I had not even before been in such a harsh environment. All these things were starting to make me more conscious about the trip, scaring me a little. Well that was the main reason now why I wanted to do it.
