The other day I was hiking in Minto Brown Island Park with some friends in
Salem Oregon. I got a nice picture of a bird and it was really nice to get all of the final preparations done for my trip. I shot a photo of this sweet looking bird.
My visit to Salem was a fun one. Seeing my mother and father for the first time in a long time was great. They gave me best wishes on my
journey and know that I will be fine and having a great time. They understand the PCT a lot better the second time around and seem to have a lot more faith in my ability to accomplish my goals. I will miss my family and my friends on my journey. I will miss Oregon and the green trees. This is the life I live though! No matter where I am, I am happy! To me that’s the main goal in life. To all the people who read my blog or are friends with me on facebook I say
“Choice Not Chance Determines Destiny.”
Live life to the fullest and get ready for one hell of a ride :) Bon Voyage!
