After an emotionally draining and overall stressful week I was very much looking forward to my Saturday hike - my entire being was itching to get out there and hike.
Well, it's been raining here off and on since Thursday, and I saw hikes being cancelled left and right. Had to wait until Friday night to finally receive confirmation that my hike would be on. I'm happy that there are still people out there who are not afraid of a little bit of rain.
Showers were in the forecast for today, but only up until 9:00 am.
Well, haha! We hiked in the fog and rain pretty much all the way until noon. Dirt road turning into mud. Us getting wetter and dirtier by the minute. Lunch was at the top of our mountain peak, standing in the rain, inhaling our sandwiches.
And guess what? I enjoyed every minute of my hike. It was awesome! Definitely one of those hikes you'll never forget.
Surprised a herd of cattle.
Little twig in the rain (I love this picture).
An entire hill full of prickly pear.
The muddy boots picture.
This is what it's all about.
Well, still got itchy feet... My boots are clean and almost dry... I'll be hiking again tomorrow.
