Even with that to look forward to, I'm feeling pretty down right now. I'm not sure why, but I'm just really in a depressed state. I'm really anxious about posting this because I feel like I've removed myself so far from blogging that I don't even have the right to get back into it. I still haven't gotten caught up on all of your blogs. It's a combination of lack of time, anxiety (it's a really daunting task trying to get caught up on sooo many posts), and the internet being ornery. I want to get caught up so much, but every time I try I let it go for a few days and get behind again. It makes me really sad because I do love reading your stories so much. I'm going to try my hardest to get caught up by the end of next week.
As for other blogging obligations, I know I owe you all some pictures from my vacation. Here they are...
|Rocky in the car on the way up, sitting on top of the giant pile of everything.|
|My car had a canoe hat.|
|Terribly steep hill that was rocky and dirty and scary to walk up and down. Oh, and we had to walk down it to get to our camp site. Fun times.|
|This is what we opened our tent to every morning.|
|Salmon Creek, also where we had to bathe. SO COLD!|
|Ben, Rocky, and me before our 4 mile hike.|
|During our hike Ben took this picture. Pretty gorgeous for a place called Buzzard Swamp.|
|Post hike. I felt ok. Wasn't huffing and puffing or anything. The real pain was from the $5.00 hiking boots I bought from Walmart. Meh. That smile was so fake.|
|Rocky loved our 15 mile canoe trip on the Allegheny River|
|Ben liked it too|
|I would have liked it better if 1. There was more padding on my butt, 2. It didn't take 8 hours instead of the predicted 5, and 3. If I had taken more than a protein shake to eat. Ugh. I'll take a hike over a canoe trip any day.|
