It's the Climb...

I read a blog a day or so ago which featured the same song on it that I put on this blog when I wrote it a few months ago; consequwntly, I remembered this post and decided to re-post it. Enjoy! ;)

Life is filled with passions that keep it exciting and fun. One of my passions is hiking.

I love to hike. I love going to Tubs Hill for relaxing, easy going hikes in which all my energy goes into focusing on family and enjoying the incredible surroundings.

But even more than that, I love strenuous hikes in which it is a guarantee that at least one large water bottle will be needed for each and every individual, (even then, we are likely to find our lips parched and throats dry before returning to civilization). Men and boys are seen helping women and children through out the terrain; shirts become wet with sweat; all find themselves hot and exhausted well before the hike is over; and the next day one finds ones muscles aching and perhaps even slightly burning with pain.

These are the hikes I enjoy the most. These are the ones that remind me that in the series of strenuous uphill climbs in life - it isn’t just the destination that matters. As Miley Cyrus puts it...
And besides...

..."the view is great!"   :)

  1. Gorgeous photos, Corine! This looks well worth that climb.

  2. Thanks! :) It was a great hike; I will definitely be hiking the Palouse Falls again!

    Anyone want to come along when I go again?


There is a ripple effect in all that we do; what you do touches me, what I do touches you...

THANK YOU for your comments; you add so much insight and brighten my day! :)
