A wonderful hike, wonderful skycandy, long over due conversations, and some hard pills to digest and grow from. 100% gratitude, respect, and appreciation from the deepest parts of my heart.
Inside my head, writing in this blog is as vital to my healing journey, and self care process as seeing my therapist, photography, hiking, and the medication I take (not anything big, just anxiety/depression stuff). Yesterday however, I decided to offer my help, unasked for, unrequested, and hopefully appreciated. This blog is a little about my walk today, and a […]
Second time hiking this trail, first time with a new friend. I love hiking alone, but sometimes, it’s nice to hike with a voice that isn’t in your head.
This hike was quite a bit different than my normal hikes. Tonight I wasn’t in my head, working through an issue I was dealing with, guilt I was working on forgiving myself for, and I wasn’t hiking to get a circular thought out of my mind. Tonight, I was thinking about being in the dating world again. The people I’ve […]
Went on a hike with a new friend. I made us a picnic lunch, she provided a new trail to explore. It was a really nice, relaxing, day. I highly recommend Limber Pine Trail if you just want an easy, smooth, walk in the shade (With peek-a-boo glimpses of Bear Lake).
Weird little hike, great views, non-existent canyon, and great wind, rain, and cool temps.
Couple hours at a street fair. Lots of people watching, and some fun weather.
As basic as the trail tonight.
Another night hike, but this one felt creepy, a little scary, and was pretty difficult due to the steepness, and how dark it was.
Hard hike to clean out the bull shit that seems to build up in my mind every few days.
Perry Canyon Hike with Indy. Really nice morning, quirky trail, and a fun old gold mine with a GeoCache at the entrance.
Morning hike, lots of being in your own head, a random run in with a very special friend, and feeling pretty crunchy inside again.
An old train, guitar toting musician, snacks, wonderful views, a dad joke spinning cowboy, and three wonderful kids that let me take pictures of them, crack jokes with them, and play music a little too loud.
Really not much to see here. Giggled at my walk last night, touched on working on a server, and left with a little opening to my mind.
Night photography, thinking about my friend and her cousin, and wondering why I’m up, I’m down, I’m up again.
Short cemetery hike. The Ogden Cemetery had some appeal, but the trail turned out to be a little disappointing. Good walk, way too distracted by the stench and loud ass crickets to worry about cyclical thinking.
Father and son, out too late, a night over the town, and bonding as two guys will do.
Short walk around a pond on the outskirts of the city. Never far from the sounds of the highway, trains blowing their horns, and homeless residue scattered here and there.
I had to hold back tears writing this one. Even though it’s not much on the surface, there is a lot today that sits deep inside me. Pride, worry, loneliness, pain, and sadness.
