Last week Sean and I experienced some of the most physical and mentally challenging 3 days of our life. We hiked the Pemi Loop trail for the first time. We hiked 32 miles over the course of three days over very difficult terrain. We summited 9 of the 4,000 footers in New Hampshire. It was such an incredible and rewarding experience to see what you can push yourself to do. The feeling that came over me through out the trip was truly incredible. During this trip, Sean and I really helped each other make it through. At least, I know that if it wasn’t for Sean I wouldn’t have been able to finish. We were at a point on the trail where we had climb up an almost straight up rock wall with small ledges to step up onto (it also had a small stream coming down it) and I started to get really nervous as I was heading up. Sean knew I was starting to struggle and snapped me out of the start of a mini panic attack which I wouldn’t have done without him. He was my rock/ is my rock in life and I feel so lucky to have that.
Our three day itinerary:
Day One: Lincoln Woods parking lot to Gouyot Shelter
Day Two: Gouyot to Liberty Springs Tent Site
Day Three: Liberty Springs to Lincoln Woods parking lot
This trip was definitely one of the best adventures I have had in my life. It was so much fun and truly amazing to realize what I am capable of pushing myself to do. I can’t wait for the next one!
Have a great rest of the week
