Blisters on my toe, rain, and wind sweeping across my back. I've been pinned down to the side of the mountain drenched with mid-summer rain. I've followed the rickety trail, faithfully since dawn but It's uninspiring, depressing and gloomy. High up in the hills, then the unexpected happens. The first rays of the sun cut through the mist, The anticipation leads to excitement and for that brief moment time stood still.
