It’s strange to take a boat to go hiking. Rubber boots are needed for the boat and rain pants. Then bring your hiking shoes and of course bear spray. As I got dropped off the beach, I luckily quickly remembered I left my hiking boots on the boat. Agh, so much gear to remember. I hide the boots by the trees and headed up the Grace Trail hike. I knew I would not be able to finish the 9 mile 6-8 one way hike as the boat was picking me up in 6 hrs.
I did not expect the snow though. I made it through some snow, even a steep part. Right after that I got the view that I was looking for of the mts and islands. But coming back down I got to unintentionally slide on me bumb; kinda fun. I never hiked alone before AK and it’s given me a lot of time to think. Ideas of what I should do, where should I go this winter have been running through me mind.
So many options, but need to research them a bit to see what make sense. I won’t mention them till I have a better idea, but I think Peace Corps is out of the picture. Since it’s been such an internal battle, I figure it is not right for me at this time.
The next day was a sunny, dry day and gotta another good sunset night. We went kayaking with Rick's sons and their wives who were all visiting us. Click here for more pix.
I am pretty outgoing. I am a realist, though people confuse that with being a pessimist. I love to travel, discover the unknown, learn about new places and people and capture it all. I like to try everything!
I'm fairly open minded and able to connect with almost anyone. I think no matter how different we all may be, you can find one thing in common with others and that's what connects people.
I was born and raised in NYC. I have been traveling since I was born with family in Malta. I have been to at least 30 countries, and 35 states in the US.
