The four mile climb up the 2,000 foot eastern Superstition Wilderness bajada and escarpment consumed the morning and much of the afternoon. It was the 80 pound backpack that did it. Ten days of supplies, tent, equipment and 3.5 gallons (28 pounds) of water; enough food for a trek across the Superstition Wilderness, water enough for two days. One day in, one day out if the water could not be replenished. Mine was a water commitment, enough water storage to allow two days to trekking to another source.
Last week, I was invited by Mohamad, to be a guest blogger for his “Around the World” Category. What an exciting way to celebrate West Michigan! Thank you, Mohamad! ♥
When I contemplate our Great Lakes state, I consistently come back to one word…weather! Living in West Michigan is like living in four completely different locations on Earth, depending on the season! I have used seasonal views of our horse barn, to display the power of Mother Earth!
