Weekly Photo Challenge: JOURNEY
A JOURNEY starts with just one step.
Pausing to take off another layer of clothing I’m already anticipating my next step on this trail of loose rock and boulder. My breathing becomes deliberate and I am sweating profusely. My hands go on my hips, my head is down and I concentrate on moving forward. “The Chef” is way ahead of me. Well, no wonder, he is endowed with lanky long legs perfect for climbing. Gros Morne Mountain in Newfoundland Canada is an exhausting hike up a steep boulder gully to a summit at an elevation of 806 meters. From up here the trail is another 7 hours of hiking. It’s all worth it as we traverse across flat mountain tops and marvel at this tundra environment.
