March 16th, 2017 ~ Day 356
The moon was shining so brightly in the sky. It was so dark out. Arriving at 5:45 am, I met my friend Becky at the trailhead on 16th Street just south of Greenway. It feels like I haven’t see her in forever! She won’t be making it to my day 365, so we’re hiking one last time before this journey ends. It’s so great to get the opportunity to hike with friends who have been a huge part of this journey.
Heading west, The moon just as bright with the city lights shining across the valley. Our plan was to do the Circumference Trail at Lookout Mountain. I have a big hike tomorrow, and I didn’t want to exhaust myself by climbing up Lookout.
As we began heading east again, the colors of the horizon started to come alive.
The beginning of the sunrise.
My hiking buddy, I’ve missed her! Becky was one of the ladies who would be there for every one of Rene’s early morning Trail Mix Hiking Meetups last summer. That was where I met both of them. If no one else showed up, it would be us three. Two beautiful souls! I am so grateful God has put them in my life and on this journey with me.
One last photo of Lookout Mountain with the green hillside and the moon hanging in the sky. We hiked almost the miles around the base of Lookout Mountain. It was a beautiful day for a hike and a wonderful hike with my friend! Only nine days to go!
