Made it all the way up to Glacier! With clenched fists because my legs were slowly going numb... . Not gonna lie, the last few days have been rough. The last 45 nights (give or take a few) we have pitched the tent, and taken it down in the morning. Imagine packing up your bed for two months straight. The stresses of life on the road are wearing on our bodies and minds a little bit. We often don't know where we are going sleep at night. When we get there, we don't sleep much because we are skittish being in new places. (And more recently about being in bear country - though we have necessary equipment and training). We wake up later in the morning, more tired than the day before. . This morning I wanted nothing more than to just lay in my sleeping bag and stare at the top of the tent. I wanted to have just one day where I didn't have to pack up my whole bed, my whole life, and put it in the car. It was the worst I had felt in awhile, and it made me feel bad. But my girl @kaylakjt reminded me that it's okay to need a day off. Not everyday has to be full of hiking and adventure. Some days are just better for laying in bed. But just knowing that I didn't HAVE to get up, made me want to get up. . All this to say that not every day has to be an ON day. Bad days come and go, for all of us. It's okay to wake up one cloudy morning and feel a bit negative. But just know that this too shall pass.
