Here was my Nemesis!

In today’s quote, I talked a little bit about my trip up Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. I am sharing this picture from the National Park Service’s website. What a beautiful place!

When my friend Marco and I hiked up, we went up the BACK of the mountain; we did NOT scale the face of  it shown here! Make no doubt about it, I am not a mountain climber – I hike.

I am grateful for so many things about that trip. I am grateful for the National Park Service for maintaining the parks across the country. My gratitude abounds for the beauty of these places. I am smiling just thinking about the opportunity to start hiking locally and camping out in some of my favorite parks! I can’t wait! I am sure I will be posting about these trips!

Be Well.

    Thank you Paul! I read you post today and immediately grabbed my gratitude journal and was able to flow – I just lost my job two days ago – so I have some new challenges and your post helped me to feel good about my situation. Thanks again! 🙂

    Great quote and story today. Since I am STILL trying to quit smoking it really drives the point home. Hope all is well with you. Once I quit smoking I’m coming back to the group 🙂

    Losing your job give you the ability to go find something else! Good Luck!
