I saw this path on a recent hike and it got me feeling all philosophical. As you can probably tell, I am generally a happy, goofy gal. But like everybody, not everything in my life is smooth sailing. I've been kind of down lately about a certain important life matter. It simply hasn't happened as quickly as I would've liked. But I sort of had an eureka moment the other day. My friend P had asked me if I wanted to join a group trip that she was planning. At first I thought, no, before I resolve this life issue X, I cannot allow myself to have fun, I must devote all of my effort and energy to issue X. But then again, I thought, hey that's the wrong attitude. We shouldn't let our lives and our happiness to be dependent upon a single factor, no matter how important it is. I will still work very hard on it and if it happens, I will consider myself very blessed. But if not, I will bravely carry on with the journey of life and still be the happy bubbly person I am. So I wrote back to P, and told her that I'd be happy to go on a trip to relax. Hey, I've earned it :-)
On our way up we saw these fossils from millions of years ago when this mountain was on the bottom of the ocean. Aren't they amazing?
And ran into a waterfall...hundreds of years ago, Native Americans probably stood at the same spot collecting water.
Yay, we have conquered the peak (sort of)! Eh, I don't want to boast, but in case you can't tell, this is the Himalayas... global warming has melted away the snow :-)
