I Did It....My Way
What can I say at this point that hasn’t been said already? I couldn’t think of a better way to end this journey, taking the day off from work, hiking 12 miles with my favorite hiking buddy, my dad, on my favorite trail, Alum Cave Bluffs, standing on my favorite spot, Cliff Tops one of four summits of My LeConte, in perfect weather, ending it….my way. My wife asked me last night if I knew what I was going to do for my last shot, as I began explaining the shot to her she stopped me in the middle and said “I don’t want to know any more”, no reason to talk me out of that spot, she knew it would end my way. Speaking of that spot, I go there saw the spot I had in my mind and set up my camera, I woke her up and “politely” asked the young lady taking a nap just below where my left foot is to “get out of my shot!”, I didn’t hike up here to change my mind about this last shot.
Thank you to all of you who have shown me such support during the journey.
