Hello and welcome to this week's Flashback Friday! New to flashback Friday? Head on over to Christopher and Tia's blog to find out how to participate :)
When I was younger...oh probably middle school, elementary school...ish? My parents took us to the Grand Canyon so we could backpack it. We spent three nights, one on the way down, one at the bottom, one on the way back up and although I know I complained and moaned and groaned the entire way, I'm glad I did it. Yes, Mom and Dad (I know you read this) YOU WERE RIGHT. You said that later on in life I would be glad I did it and at the time I was *sure* that you were wrong and that I would never appreciate my time hiking the canyon. I was wrong, I love being able to tell people that I have backpacked one of the seven natural wonders of the world!
Here is the picture from the beginning of our trip, don't we look energized and refreshed? Let's just say that's not how the trip ended ;)
