A Perfect Ending
Published on September 2, 2008
Today Hansel and I went somewhere we have never been before in Arizona: Prescott. We don’t know much about it either, but we got online this morning and found a few trails to start our exploration. The last place we went hiking was Sedona back in late May–or was it early June? I can’t remember it feels like years ago. Usually our summer is packed with hiking and camping trips, but this year was different.
I feel like I’ve had to start from the beginning again. Not too sure what my hamstring can or can’t handle…and I have been pushing it quite a bit lately too.
But I long for this. I need this. I am at my most peace when I am hiking. I am at my most confidant when I am climbing. I am at my most balanced when I am completely engulfed by nature. Hiking and mountain climbing is just something I do. Like Yoga, writing, Art.
It was a beautiful day for sure. The weather was perfect with a soft breeze singing and there were dragon flies everywhere (they’re here in AZ too Sandy!!). Hansel and I hiked about six miles together, laughing or walking quietly the entire time.
