Out on the trail the world makes sense.
Above the fog, leaving the world below:
I've done some spectacular hikes throughout March.
Here are some pics of the ones that bring back happy memories...
The most challenging was my 21-mile hike 3 weeks ago.
Stats for that: 5500 vertical feet
Fitbit stats for the day: 47263 steps / 615 floors
14 miles in at the summit looking down:
Then there was a snow hike:
Then, of course, the hike with my kids:
And yesterday an upside down hike, where we started on top of the mountain, did the downhill first, did some creek hopping, looped around and finished by doing a quite steep uphill.
They call this portion of the uphill the Rim Trail, and it gets a bit tricky at times.

Overall March was a tough sad month and I have to say that hiking played a big part of getting me through.
April is my birthday month and I'm determined to make it a good one!!

Thank you, SparkFriends, everybody who commented, sent goodies, and e-mails. Your support means the world to me.
It's been a tough week. On Monday morning I actually received an e-mail with some hiking photos. Seriously, dude?!?
Little by little I seem to be regaining some of my rational thinking, and I'm currently on my way from sad to mad. That's a good shift. Today I'm contemplating whether I should throw darts at his picture ,,|,,
The below quote speaks to me quite strongly.
“You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won't happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”
― Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential
It is, indeed, up to me. I can hang on or I can let go, but unless I let go I won't be able to move on. And move on I will.
Alright - end of chapter.
This morning I hiked with my kids and my dog. I had invited both of them and surprisingly they both came. I chose a small hike, just 3 miles, didn't want to scare them off :) The hike ended at a pretty little stream. What a marvelous time we had! It's moments like that, that feed my soul.
Here's a photo of my guys.
Tomorrow's hike will be a monster of 21 miles. I'll be able to work out a bit more of my anger on that one. :)
