Exploring Powderface Ridge North today was a gentle reintroduction to converting back to my mountain legs from my sea legs. Instead of walking along a sandy beach looking out to the ocean, I hiked along a snow covered ridge line looking out to a row of mountain peaks. When I am at the ocean I miss the mountains, when I am at the mountains I miss the ocean! At a vulnerable moment while in Nova Scotia, with misty eyes, I expressed "At times I feel like a lost soul, I don't know where I belong!"
Today I am in the mountains!
Today I belong in the mountains!
Today I embrace the mountains!
We were five today.
blue sky + nothing but bright sunshine = long shadows
Today we had that hard crusty snow to work our way through.

"At times I feel like a lost soul, I don't know where I belong!"
Lost in my thoughts!
Yes, we are five today and we still are.
We enjoyed a lengthy lunch break. It was one of those days. No rush, no fuss, no muss. We covered little ground today at only 7.0 kms, yet we spent loads of time embracing everything about this gorgeous weather day and beautiful scenery day.
Now those are the kind of clouds I really like.
They add so much to a photograph.
We retraced our steps for the trek back.
Filling my lungs with mountain air feels as wonderful as breathing in the sea air. If it's sand between my toes or snow down my boots, either way I feel I am in my happy place. With the weather forecast we have on hand for numerous days ahead, my thinking is I will be enjoying beach like weather in mountainous surroundings. I call that having the best of both worlds!
