It’s fall. These are some falls. And I got to them by falling. This may not be my best from this day. But it is the first shot of many I have decided to process. Because the result of this image is what is on my mind constantly. And it’s on my mind because I am still in so much pain.
Wearing my new vegan hiking boots (AKA: “useless for hiking” boots) I carefully tried to get down the slippery boulder to get to this spot, I not only slid, I did almost like one of those cartoon-ish episodes where one slips on a banana. Then I landed shoulder and elbow first onto the rock. How I did not completely shatter my elbow is beyond me. I did lose my vision and threw up from the pain. I was grateful at first that no one was around to see me. And then I just wanted someone around to help me back up to the trail…
Two days later, I am covered in bruises and my left arm is useless. Wish I would have gotten a better shot outta all this nonsense… But in the end, I had a great day. And I plan on returning this week to try and one-up this shot….with more grippy shoes 🙂
