Here I am on the edge of a cliff hiking up a mountain in Norway. Hugging the right side of the trail. My hand on a handrail. One slip one mistake I fall off the edge of a cliff. My body is shaking hoping I don’t make that one slip or that one mistake. I make it up to the end of the cliff face. I look down to see what I just I did and I cannot believe it. What did I just do I say to myself. Why am I here? What am I doing? What is the point of hiking along a cliff face? But then I realize the goal is to feel accomplished. The goal is to see incredible views. The goal is to see incredible sights.
On this mountain, there are two farms that were used in the 1800s. When we make it to the first farm we ate our lunch looking down at a fjord. I couldn’t believe that there was a farm that was on a cliff that was looking out to a fjord.
We continued hiking and there I was again hugging the right side of the trail. This time climbing up rock stairs and then turning to see that you are on a cliff face. The hike was smooth sailing after that.
We saw one more farm that looked like it was from the Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs because it was tiny. On the way down from the second farm. I realized that this experience might have been scary but it is good to have some scary or some adventure in your life. Things might be scary they might be hard but you need to fight through it and that is what I did on this hike. That is how I hope to deal with tough situations this year.
