Rewind just about 12 hours to 7am that morning. My alarm clock started singing to let me know it was time to get a move on the day. Even though my friend Britta & I were trying to get an 8am start on the day's hike, the trail head is only minutes from my house so I was able to sleep in relatively late. I packed my day pack & Bosco's as well, making sure to add plenty of food & water to sustain both of us for what was about to be a long day's hike.
Britta arrived, Bosco was happy to see her as always, and we were off towards the trail.
My life has taken me to some crazy places, especially since moving to Montana. I only dreamed as a little girl that my life could actually turn out this way, that there were so many beautiful things/people/places on this planet to enjoy.
Only thirty minutes ago I was staring into the eyes of a bear...
What were you doing thirty minutes ago?
