I am so glad I went up Mount Becher today. Yesterday afternoon, I was sure I would not go – conditions would not be favourable, I thought. Also – why not just be lazy for a day?
But my word for the year is “yes” so I went.
I should have remembered that even a bad day out there hiking or shoeing is much better than a good day spent doing anything else.
No, the weather was not ideal, nor were the conditions. But what a beautiful day it was! We worked hard on the uphill climb; we avoided and jumped over rivers and puddles, we fell here and there. we slipped and slid and laughed.
And, at the top of the ridge just below the summit the sun came out just for a bit – the clouds gave us a small window – and it was so beautiful!
