After waffling back-n-forth, I agreed to go on another trek up Tiger Mountain. The Lazy Me wanted to curl in up bed with the Paul Maier book I am reading. The Competative Me wanted to face the mountain again, but conquer it with a little more dignity and a lot less concern about having a heart attack.
This time I was ready. I was wearing comfy sweats and a light jacket, and remembered to pack a hair tie, tissue and a lip balm. I was determined to do better. To quote Yogi Berra, “Baseball’s 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.” Even though his math is kinda’ bad, I agree about the 90% mental battle. I was determined.
The leaves are just starting to turn. I loved the way they framed the love of my life on the trail; deciduous swords crossing in honor.
Ruby, that is EXACTLY what I felt when I saw that first view through the leaves….I LIVE here….I am NOT on vacation. We feel blessed to live here. Thanks for the encouragement.
Wow! You really live there? They are some absolutely spectacular pics of God's creation. Lovely! And you are super brave to take it on. Good on you!
