This photo – I took it two years ago when Simon and I hiked the Iceline Trail – and to think that tomorrow morning I’m setting out to do it again, but this time with the added thrill of 5 days in Yoho and all sort of other explorations there.

It would be much nicer if it could be Simon and I again. I love Simon and I love hiking with him.

We’ll do it again together. Just not this time.

So – today I have spent time prepping. My first backpack of the season so going carefully through all my “stuff” – tent, new sleeping bag, clothes, food, emergency stuff – on and on – and trying to keep my pack as light as humanly possible.

Today I walked with the dogs and thought long and hard about purpose. This has been coming up a lot for me lately. partly because I am getting older and my life has changed drastically¬†and I am questioning purpose all over again. Partly it’s because I want to expand my understanding of it.

Mostly I think that because my life has changed so much I have to evolve new strategies to meet my purpose.

A lot of thoughts about this today. I plan on letting it sit with me in Yoho over the next several days. I know I’ll have a chance to spend time alone in the mountains – always good answers there. I can almost feel those answers waiting for me – so close.
