Last weekend we camped and hiked in the Adirondacks. We stayed at Round Pond, then woke up and hiked Round Mountain and Noonmark Mountain. After I stopped huffing and puffing, I had a lot of time to sit and be quiet at the summit. And that is just what I needed. To sweat it out, gulp down fresh mountain air, stretch my legs and think about the people I love, the memories I carry with me and the opportunities that lay ahead. I left exhausted, rejuvenated and full of gratitude.
