My favorite picture from the trail. A reminder to always find happiness in the little things... no matter how miserable you might think you are.
I could have been in a terrible mood. The sleepless night due to high winds, waking up to a fresh layer of dirt on myself and everything in my tent, the low temps and morning rain, my slowed pace due to my swollen foot and ankle. Knowing my thru hike was probably coming to an end because of my injury. The list could go on and on.
Instead I decided to push all of the negativity and doubt out of mind and focus on this: The rush of happiness I felt when I realized my rain jacket's hood made me look like Darth Vader. It's funny how the simplest things can bring someone so much joy. My little nerd heart was so happy. Happy to be out there, experiencing what life is all about. Just me, my best friend and the trail. Strolling down the trail, humming the imperial march 👯 #pct #nerdalert
