IMG_7839Every now and then my mountaineer husband manages to trick me into going on a hike with him.

It won’t be too hard!

You should definitely bring your camera…It’s going to be gorgeous day!

It will be so much fun!

So, on one of my last days of freedom before going back to work, he roused me from my pleasant state of languid torpor. He scraped me off the couch with a spatula and forced me to brave the wilds of Shenandoah National Park in frigid temperatures.

It won’t be too hard, he said.

It will be gorgeous, he said.

It will be fun, he said.

Every now and then…he’s right!
