We hope to do a long back pack this summer in the Sierras. Sort of a bucket list item. I was diagnosed with COPD this spring. A hereditary thing, I don't smoke. While I am in the early stages, I know my days of hiking and active pursuits are numbered, so we are trying to do things now while I can. We should all really live like that because you just don't know what tomorrow brings.
We've never slept out on the ranch, well, except our own deck, but that doesn't count, so we decided to do a little backpacking trip this time at home. Worked all day and then packed up and took off.
We got stares. Lots of them.
But we had a lovely sleep out at the falls. They roar right now and we both dreamed of the ocean.
