Summer 2017 I accomplished my first backpacking trip since I was a younger person. Much younger..... Trekking 16 miles roundtrip with 10 pounds on my back and gaining 5,000 feet of elevation gave me a clear reckoning with the number of decades I have been walking this earth! But I did it! It was a grand time for my family and I. This piece is from a photo I took of my husband coming down the path in a beautiful meadow in the Yosemite high country. It was a very warm bright sunny day....Can you feel it?
