That’s me trudging up the last leg of the Sawtooth Lake trail just outside of Stanley, Idaho. This week’s photo challenge calls for conveying a sense of achievement. As much as I strive to do well in my writing and editing endeavors, it’s only when hiking that I feel the ultimate sense of accomplishment. This backcountry trip marked my first since working in Yellowstone years ago. We decided to camp at the lower altitude of Alpine Lake in order to make the last couple of miles without huge packs on our backs. Hubby took the trail photo and I captured the panoramic one with my iPhone.
