I had no idea how I was going to get to this hike.

    But I did it.

    I have never done anything like this before.

    I was in the car on the way to this trailhead.

    It was a day trip.

    On the way there, I was getting my head down for the hike.

    I had planned to take the short walk to the base camp, but that was going out the window.

    A few days later, I took the long walk up a steep and rocky trail.

    My friend had been camping with me and I thought I could at least see her, so I decided to take her along.

    After a little bit of walking and some scrambling up the trail, I saw the trailhead to the next day’s hike.

    The hike was a little bumpy, but I made it.

    The rest of the way, it was pretty straight forward.

    And then the sun came out.

    But that was the only reason I thought about hiking today.

    The sun was really out of focus and I was just focusing on the trail and the hike ahead.

    I didn’t really think about it too much at the time, but when I look back on it now, it makes me think about why I was so scared.

    What if I am going to die?

    I would have been a little scared to do this hike, but now I know that it was a good decision.

    So what were my other reasons?

    Because this is a hiking trip, I have a day job.

    I am trying to keep my life on track, so my work is not the main reason for my hike.
