“Happiness is not a thing or an event, it is a choice.”

If I had quit in the first 2 days like I wanted to, look at all I would have missed. I had forgotten how beautiful Minnesota is. I feel truly blessed.

I stop for lunch & remove my shoes for a nice soak in the stream. This is undoubtably one of life’s greatest pleasures. The cold water feels heavenly on my swollen, achy feet & ankles.

Another gorgeous day at the office I say. I sigh contentedly. I live for my lunchtime breaks. Time to sit back & relax!

After lunch I head out for some more earth pounding action. All told by the end of the day, this was one of the most brutal of my hiking days thus far & one of the most absolutely gorgeous, jaw dropping views day. I’d do this one again in a heartbeat.
