Yaking about backpacking

One word I would use to describe myself right now is lively. Hiking 6 miles straight up a mountain is something I have never done before. Between hours of scaling switchbacks in the dry desert air and surviving off of peanut butter and fruit snacks, this hike was far from a walk in the park. But the feeling I got when I approached the south rim of a big bend, looking over the Rio Grande into Mexico was indescribable. My group (Natalie, Eli, and Jessie) was supportive in every way and made the trek truly unforgettable. Anyway, the van back to the campsite is leaving in two minutes and I have to go. Until next time #doitforkaren #pinkrules
