: Hi, Rebecca!
: Oh, and if you come next year, Rebecca, and you meet Darla & her gang...DO NOT listen to them if they tell you they are afraid they can't handle the climbs up the trails!! I assured Darla I would walk slowly & stay with her & help her along. "You can do it, Darla!" says I, in my most sincerely encouraging manner. Imagine my surprise when that selfsame Darla left me in the dust, bounding along ahead of me like a gazelle, faster than a speeding Huron, leaping tall rocks in a single bound! She had done the whole first half of the trail, had her lunch, and headed down again before I drug my weary carcass to The Sacred Rock of Uncas! The noive!! Tsk.
: And then there's always the challenge of a full-figured gal trying to squeeze through the Wildcat Trap without scraping off essential bits of her person! I'm always afraid I'll get stuck in there like Pooh in the honey jar...Park Rangers pushing from one end, and fellow Gatherers pulling from the other! Yikes!!
How sweet of you to call me a gazelle, looking at my pix you can see I don't in any way resemble one but just being there together with everyone does make one feel kind of bouncy, for lack of a better word. Actually I think it was the fear of being stuck myself in the Wildcat trap that made me go so fast, the vision of someone having to get on the rocks above to trickle olive oil down the rocks to get me out is a great incentive you know. tee hee
Anyway I had the most wonderful time ever, and cannot wait till next year.
love all you guys,
