June 29, 2014, Foothills Trail - I have just returned from volunteering at the Ultimate Hike on the Foothills Trail...it was different, both because of the time of year and because of seeing it from a different angle: volunteer instead of hiker.
Although our Columbia team was smaller, the overall group was diverse and larger than 2013 (a lot of familiar faces among coaches and hikers). There were also a couple of insane people:
Jonathan probably figured he was being the good son, and he was – taking his girlfriend and his mother walking in the woods, a Sunday hike up to Sunfish Pond.
It’s only a few miles and while it might be hard hiking to get there, we can take our time, and it will be all downhill on the way back to the car. And, he probably thought, it’s a beautiful day. Momma will love it. Fresh air, sunshine, and my two ladies can spend some time together.
Sweet. What could go wrong?
Ok, so I have just gotten some time to sit down and write, China has been keeping me busy. I figured I will send you all my photos when I get back to the states, a lot of them have been saved directly onto my hard drive and I rarely get access to a computer to pull them back out (Ill send them from now on!)
