The past few days if not maybe weeks those of us in South Carolina have been blessed with spring like weather in the 60's. So Tuesday (January 31) I thought that it might be fun for Ryan and I to go out for a hike.
Always it started out with sayings like:
-Oh I am so excited
-This is going to be so fun
-I cannot wait to get to the top
-I love to hike we should do this more often
A few photos from the start:
|The start of the steps that I was more than happy to skip up.|
Then as we got started on the hike and hit some of the uphill areas you would hear me say things like: -Crap I thought I was in better shape than this
-Why do I always think this is going to be fun
-Sorry I dragged you out here for this torture
-Really now who came up with the crazy idea to hike up a huge hill for fun?
Here are a few photos from when we started hitting the hard stuff:
|Most people stop here thinking they reached the top...|
|But it is not...that red tree shows where the trail leads next.|
-I didn't come this far to turn around
-Do you want to turn around?
-Hold on I need to rest
-I cannot wait to get the the top
Here are a few from the almost top:
|The highest point but still not the end.|
-I feel like I just accomplished something!
-Wasn't that fun?
-I'm going to sit here for a few minutes and just take a break and enjoy the view.
-I love this, we should do this more often!
A few photos from the top:
|One of my favorite places to sit and chill.|
|I always feel so close to the sky.|
|Everything looked so sad and dead|
|I love to just sit here and enjoy a good sub with Ryan and just let go and relax.|
-Going down is easier than coming up right?
-How do some of the old people we saw coming up here make it. I mean getting up here is hard enough but really how do they not fall flat on their faces going down?
-I wish I could fly like the birds do.
Then once I really start heading back down:
-Wow this is easy.
-Oh I am so lucky I have yet to break my neck.
-Ouch that tree hit me.
-Crap how did I get up here...were my legs this short on the way up?
The only photo from the way down, really I would of taken more but I was trying not to fall and break my neck.
And then once we back at the bottom and I am safe and sound with lost of smiles you hear:
-That was so much fun!
-I cannot wait to come back!
-Didn't you have fun?
Yea poor Ryan might be bringing his Ipod next time, I may or may not talk... A LOT. Either way Ryan is always a trooper (sometimes not the happiest trooper) when it comes to my crazy hikes that I just randomly request we go on.
I cannot wait to do this again, and with spring almost here I cannot wait to see things being, I don't know a little bit more lively!
