The Lone Hiker

That's me.

Saturday my friend, Nicky, was going on an all girls hike and she invited me to tag along. It was great! About a quarter of the way through the loop I had to turn back as I told Brandon I would be home to take over with the kids by 2.

I spent half the hike alone on the trail. It was AMAZING! B has hiked several times alone so when I came home telling him how great the solitude was his response was anti-climatic. In fact, I think he might prefer to be alone in nature (speculating here so don't take it to the bank).

It was chilly. By chilly I mean - mid fifties! Brrr.... San Antonio has gotten in my blood. But I was spurred to even jog part of the trail by the cold, the fact that I had to pee so bad my kidneys were aching, and as I checked the time I was headed to be late! Not that I would turn into a pumpkin but I want to do this again and punctuality is very important to B when it comes to the children.

Here are some pictures. Well - its really only one picture that I photoshopped with my favorite first, going down to my least favorite.

There's a lot to be said for hiking alone (I can only imagine). It must have been so quiet and tranquil. So glad you got to experience it.

Creative shot. Definitely a keeper.
