Sunrise Paddle + Polar Plunge

I was scrolling through Instagram on a Sunday night when I noticed a photo Christian Pondella posted of a lake with a lot of snow still on it! Immediately sent him a message  asking about the lake! within an hour we had sent a few messages back and forth and agreed to meet at 5 am to drive together up to Saddlebag lake ( up the Tioga pass) and catch the Sunrise on the lake! 

 

Ive always admired Christians photos growing up in Mammoth, But I never imagined some of his first photos of me would be ones jumping into a lake ;) 

 

Check out Christians Instagram! Its pretty epic!
