I had to admit, I hated camping and gold panning. In fact, I applied and took a weekend job last summer so I can have a valid alibi not to go camping and gold panning with Hubby. But I am surprised with myself that this year... I am always looking forward to weekends and hoping that My Sweetest and I will be spending them up the mountain.
Well, there are many factors why things went differently this year. This year, I started enjoying nature because I can see how beautiful it is when you are looking at it from the top.I started training for the races, I just love running on the trails.
or deep in the thick woods along the river...
Oh boy, I am so glad that I got into running because it is much easier for me to walk, jump or hop from one rock to another up and down the river with 20 lbs [more or less] gas can on right hand and buckets on the other. It's just like weight-lifting on balance beam. hahaha
[This is the letter we found on our truck when we came back from gold panning. Someone pass by our camp site and left this message to warn us. So nice of him or her or them.]
