So the hike...I decided to do the hike that was only for 4th years and YCLs (and of course leaders). The hike was to...Mt McLoughlin! What an amazing day it was for me! We started at 6 30 am and got to the summit at noon. 5.5 miles and 5.5 miles down. We left the summit at 1 and got to the bottom a little before 4. I had such a great time and to tell you the truth, going up was much easier than going down. Going down was hard on the tired legs, knees, feet (hence the swollen ankles below), and who knows what else. I still can't believe that I made it to the top! :) I don't mean to brag, but I truly am happy about it. I actually started crying when I made it to the top. 9500 ft - it was a spiritual experience. I absolutely loved every minute of it! All in all it was an amazing experience. I did miss Nic a lot. It was hard being away from him for 1 whole week - I'm kind of pathetic. He missed me too though. He came and picked me up, because my mom left on Wednesday because Dani had her baby. We all missed my mom at camp. It was sad not to have her there, but she was where she was supposed to be. I started laundry the minute I got home and took a shower. I do have a confession to make...I hadn't showered in 42 hours. After the hike on Thursday, I took a shower at 4 30 pm and then didn't take one until Saturday. haha Needless to say, I needed one - I literally had no time to take one. Nic and I watched a movie and relaxed for a little bit. We then headed over to Cherise's house for dinner and fun with Michelle, Craig and their families. It was great to see them all. :) After we got home, Nic gave me a yummy massage. :) How lucky am I?! It was a great week, but it was even greater to be home. That was my Xperience at girls camp - Be Thou an Example!
