It's A Long Way To The Top
This was taken during my epic hike with my brother-in-law a few years ago. The idea was to walk in to the Belknap Grove of Giant Sequoias while passing through several other smaller groves. We did not make it to the Belknap Grove. It was my fault. At this point of the hike I was lying on my back wondering whether I'd make it back to the trailhead or not. I had to find a walking stick to help me get up the mountain and back to the truck. I did have a little motivation to keep moving when I noticed a mountain lion following us. Not really. There was no mountain lion as far as I know, but, the thought kept creeping into my head as I hobbled along. I sure wasn't going to be able to outrun my brother-in-law!
