Just need to talk to my friends(23)
Trying to read and not get behind. Very decent day here today but I know it can change in a second.
XOX to all
Glad you're home safe and sound. I know why you felt you had to go - not just to prove to yourself that you could do it alone but to talk things out with Don. Glad you got that done and feel good about it.
I knew there would be tears - even reading your post there are some tears here - they always seem pretty close. I'm glad Trixie made the trip okay - I know it was a comfort to have her with you.
Your campsite is so pretty and the pictures are wonderful. I can't imagine being out in the wilderness like that by myself - or even with someone. But, you've done it so many times, it's just second nature to you. Tell me, a flat-lander so to speak, why are there so many dead looking trees. Is that just something that happens in the forest? I know we have dead ones from time to time so I guess that's the reason there, too. The mountains are so beautiful. There may be some snow on them in a few days.
It's great and probably not a coincidence that you picked three days that were beautiful before the bad weather set in. I know you're glad to be home and to know you can do it when and if you want to.
I'm sure Dale, Zane and your mother were so anxious to get the call from you that you were home. We were all anxious to see a post from you, too. I expected one yesterday - even thought maybe you stayed an extra night. But, I'm glad you did it and are satisfied with how it went.
I know we were all with you as was Don so you weren't alone. I talk to Charles all the time, too - I think it makes us feel a little closer to them even though they're not with us anymore, except in spirit.
Again, thanks for posting the beautiful pictures - wouldn't mind in the least seeing more if and when you have time. Glad you're home and well. Rest some today and be glad you're home and did what you set out to do - all of it.
