The Hourglass

“By midweek, I can’t focus on my duties at work, and spend most of my time on Summitpost and Mountain Project,” writes Niki Yoblonski. “There are so many things in the world I want to see–so many mountains to climb, things to discover. I have to get out of there.” Yet, inevitably, Sunday evening has her praying for the trailhead, a burger and a soft bed. Niki’s theory on achieving the work-outdoor life balance? Just turn the hourglass.

You can find more of Niki’s work at: And you can listen to her previous Short, “By Slim Chance.”
