From my very first hike ever!
10/19 Dames Cave.
I did not venture inside, but I will now when I get the chance.
I was burning the last remnants of daylight and made it back to my car just in time for a cloudy sunset. The woods were coming alive, and so was I. The desire for adventure was always there, but on that evening I stepped into the unknown and am better for it.
On the trek back to my car I passed two women and a man wearing spelunking helmets. Hearing the rustling leaves through the dark shadows between the trees, I thought they were much braver to be going in as I was hurrying out.
New paths are like that. New endeavors are like that. The unknown beckons always. Some days it’s “not today.” Others, it’s “yes please.”
