Inspired

Sometimes the hardest part of the hike is getting the selfie.  Yesterday, there were seven of us, and trying to get a shot where we can see all faces can be a challenge.

The hike to Buffalo Mountain is one that I’ve done many times.  The hike itself is not my favorite – it’s very short and not very challenging, but the vista is probably one of the best in this area.  After last week’s hike, I thought these warriors deserved a break, so short hike/great view it was.

As usual, pictures don’t do it justice.

We had the mountain to ourselves, so we stayed up there and enjoyed it for almost an hour.

Such an incredibly blue sky, another beautiful February day, it was so relaxing and peaceful to be there.

My inspiration of the day came from a woman who has been hiking with me for a couple of years.  I remember when we first started hiking, Joanne was afraid to get a good look, because she had a fear of heights (much like I did in the beginning).  But yesterday, she climbed out on the rocks, looked over the edge and maneuvered her way around like a pro.  She’s amazing!

My little group keeps growing, and I’m inspired by the enthusiasm, the perseverance, and the joy that we all get from being together.

Thanks for visiting, come join my group.
