the great wall

Friday, August 7, 2009

No words could describe this past day and the experience I had! First off we spent a night camping which was my first time ever camping! Then we woke up around 5 to pack up our camp site and moved towards hiking the great wall! The hike was the most amazing experience I have ever had and I am sooo happy I didn't turn back! It was crazy to walk on these narrow paths with nothing on either side. I definately faced my fear of heights and I wouldn't trade the experience for the world! Everything was so beautiful and pictures don't even show how beautiful it actually is. it was a real eye opening experience and I am so proud of myself for doing it all and sticking in until the end after multiple trips, cuts, and bruises I am so happy I did it and the experience will never ever be topped it was amazing and I even got a I climbed the great wall t-shirt! :) I had an great day and am so grateful! Can't wait til tomorrow!!!

Oh, my goodness! I got a little "sick" when I read the part about nothing on the sides. Like you, and most people, I have a fear of heights. I'm glad you were able to conquer that fear. Wear your shirt with pride! Karen Wells DSA South Africa

Like my dear friend Karen whose comments I am following as I follow your blogs, I would be terrified to walk the GWC knowing it had no sides. Hate heights. Typing just got challenging with one of the cats on my lap. Terribly spoiled. Talk later.
