This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #163, Amy challenges everyone with the topic of “Keep Walking.”
Looking at the photos on Amy’s post reminds me of the time when I completed the most difficult hike I’ve attempted to-date – Waterfall Canyon, completed in 2017.
It wasn’t that the hike was long – it was a measly 1.5 mile – but after the first 0.8 miles, the trail became difficult. My aunt and I were climbing over rocks and boulders while making sure we were not stepping on movable rocks. We stopped often as the elevation climb took a lot of strength. I remember telling myself, “just one more step.” I even recall counting my steps – one two three, one two three, just one more step.
I don’t recall how long it took my aunt and I to reach the 40-foot waterfall but when I got there, all I remember was I didn’t want to move anymore.
