Tomorrow I leave for the final section of the Four Corners Loop from Angel Fire NM back to the town square in Santa Fe.
Today was a good rest day, I needed it. Today is one of the wettest and torrential rainiest days of the entire summer. It’s absolutely pouring out right now and I am actually feeling a little under the weather. I will rest well tonight, sleep in then repack all my gear I photographed today. In the morning I will get ready for the final 108+ miles ahead of me.
I always knew I would be successful in finishing this giant hiking loop, it was never in doubt in my mind. I am looking forward the feelings, tears of joy and the explosion of memories that will flutter through my mind.
I thank you all for following me on my fabulous journey this summer. You are my trail companions, angles and it is a pleasure to share my epic experience with you.
As astronaut Scott Kelly says “you go to heaven when you are born,” I spent this summer just walking, listening and watching my circular slice of heaven.
“Hike your own hike” they say, and I did!
