The night & daytime temperatures have gone up enough to make both pleasantly comfortable again. I am happy to crawl out of my warm cocoon & get going for the day when I am not shivering. I have a hard time motivating myself to climb out of such a warm, cozy place when it is so uncomfortably cold out.

Today was another tough one for me. I am incredibly grateful for Jim, Sue, & Penny. They have kept me going & have been so kind patiently waiting for me during my increasingly frequent breaks and my slow speed.I plodded along just focusing on one foot in front of the other. My wonderful body has performed admirably day after day never once failing me. I have asked more from myself in this past month than I ever have. I am exhausted. I am ready to be done so I can thank my body by taking care of it & allow it to start recovering.

There was more elevation changes today than the past few. The visual climate has once again shifted. There are now these stunning sections of clear pools of water. The larger ones have birch trees standing in them. It’s one more unexpected change in scenery. It amazing me how many sub climates I have passed through. All have their own unique charm & beauty.
