A Goal Accomplished

Well, I returned safely from my Big Bend trip last night, and I've been mulling over how exactly I should post about it. I'm having trouble forming words that are adequate to describe the experience. I have about 500 photographs, and while I promise not to post all of them, there will be quite a few forthcoming, once I get them sorted out.

About a year ago, I wrote down in my journal a list of goals that I would like accomplish. One of them was to run a 5K, which I checked off this summer. Another was to hike to the South Rim at Big Bend National Park. Well, here I am:
My sister and I made it to the top. It was grueling, but worth it. Next on the list of goals: learn Spanish. Yikes.

I'll post some more pictures tomorrow. I'm off to the laundry room for now.


  1. This picture is amazing. It actually makes me proud to be your friend.

    Anytime I go on a trip, I find it nearly imposible to blog about it. It's just too much for a few paragraphs. What do you focus on? It's much easier for me to blog about who I stood next to in the grocery line.

    Welcome back. I have thought of you all weekend.

  2. what a gorgeous, amazing picture. Yay for you!

  4. I wish I could edit comments :-)

    Yay! You're back! I love the picture! You look great, and I love the huge (though rather worn out looking) "freedom!" grin on you! ;-) I'm very proud of you!

    I look forward to hearing about your week. And PLEASE overload me with pictures. I'm getting stir crazy. I need to live vicariously through my sisters!

  5. Good for you - wow! And what a gorgeous, exhausted photo.
