We ascended…..and descended…..and ascended again.

We stumbled around in the dark….for hours.

We burned….and then we froze….and then burned again.

We (or one of us at least) transformed….into ninjas.

We considered….burning non-essentials (sleeping bags, tents, food, etc).

We labored uphill…and labored downhill.

We persevered….we triumphed….we left early.

So now I can cross backpacking through mountains in Oklahoma off my life to-do list. Forever.  Thank the Lord.
