Hiking in the Rain

Dakota's 10 mile hike was beautiful, but very long and wet. He struggled to keep up as we climbed the steep switchbacks, and the drizzle turned into a steady downpour by the time we reached the summit. He complained a little about the cold and sore feet, but I did everything I could to stay happy and pleasant. I encouraged him along the way, and occasionally visited with other members of the group who fell back to check on us. I had a great time, and even though Dakota complained, I think he had a good time too. He told me later that place was one of the most beautiful places he ever saw.
