Brutal, but Beautiful!

Thursday, August 11, 2011

The boys and I hiked the North Loop Trail in the Spring Mountains today. I haven't hiked that trail for over 13 years and I was much thinner then! It is a pretty brutal climb for the first two miles, and I was getting so tired. (It doesn't help that I got only 4 hours of sleep last night-I was too excited about this hike) Now I am just exhausted!

It was gorgeous up there with old twisted trees and wildflowers. The breeze whispered through the trees and cooled our faces. The scent of pine was overwhelming. We saw and heard so many birds and animal sign.

I am more motivated to lose this weight now, so I can continue to hike for many more years!

Happy Trails!
