mountain days

I spent some time in the Brecon Beacons yesterday with some friends.  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect mountain day.  The sun shone bright against a blue sky offering us some warmth out of the shadows.  We walked a trail that is less frequented by the casual weekend hiker, which meant we basically had the mountain to ourselves, passing less than 10 people on a 6-hour hike.

As usual, we spent a great deal of time sharing our stories and the challenges we are currently facing in our day to day lives.   When I share my story with others, I feel less alone and come to appreciate how much we are all the same at some basic level of being human.  A good mountain day strengthens that bond as we whittle away the miles together.

I did take pictures of the walk, but unfortunately I left my camera with Will.  So I’ll have to post them another time.
