Today's plan was to complete some kind of a big hike up in the Skoki Region. It was a later start due to waking to rain and working around and between the showers to get ready for the day. We were ready and made the very short drive to the trail head only to arrive in a down poor. We waited, we texted, we waited, we left, completed an errand, came back and got going. We had a short period where the weather was beautiful as you can see in the first two photos. We continued on to the forest section and then the sky opened, it poured, it thundered, we took shelter, we geared up more, we moved on, we took shelter, we moved on, we took shelter, it thundered. We discussed what to do, I knew this was not for me, we aborted the plan for today and did a turn about and hiked back to our vehicles. I wanted to do something so after a snack and a quick chat, we went in different directions to each find a way to save our day.
Before calling it a night, I hung out in my hammock and read for awhile. It was a nice night and I did not want it to end but tomorrow was another day, filled with taking down camp, hitting a hiking trail and then having the drive home. In our world today I am working at living a life, finding enjoyment, being open to change, accepting what needs to be and that played a big part again in my day today.
