This year I hiked Oregon Southbound on the Pacific Crest Trail. In June. Over snow fields, and through lots of burns and miles of downed trees. Very difficult going but it teaches patience and care although I admit a few of these sections were trying….it really slows the pace. Sometimes you can’t climb over, like the picture here and you’ve got to figure another way, maybe right, maybe left. Kinda like life. But you keep on going.
