Hiking Melakwa Lake
In a very uncharacteristic move I went on a ten mile hike alone last Saturday and guess what? I loved it. It turns out, hiking much like running is a fantastic thing to do alone. You can go at your own pace, never worry about slowing someone down or rushing them along and if you have to pee, drink water or take a photo there is no one there to complain about you stopping. That being said I have always enjoyed hiking with Cameron but hiking alone is a true novelty to me. On my way up I made a concerted effort to not stop and took note of all the spots I wanted to photograph on my way down. I love hiking but I truly dislike an unnecessary stopping. However, taking photos of all the beautiful places I get to spend my time truly makes my heart happy.
