So from here on out, no more hiking with "pals". It means I'll have to choose my hikes to be a lot less risky, but in the long run they'll be a lot more fun.
|I'll probably have to avoid bushwhacking through the rhododendron...|
|And I won't go rock-hopping across big creeks...|
|And I'll have to be careful not to fall on my ass while taking self-portraits with my timer...|
|But you know what? The views are still as grand.|
