Soon after, we noticed paw marks in the snow right on the trail in the direction we were headed. They were smaller, probably bobcat, but this did not help the anxiousness we were now feeling. We trekked on quickly through this wooded area and soon made it out into a meadow, where the trail winded up the hillside to the ridge we would follow all the way to the peak.
That vision of the sun was cresting the horizon in the east is something truly remarkable. Added to what we went through to deserve this view was truly amazing to see such a thing. The morning light began unveiling mountains.
Mountains were way off in the distance and in all directions. To the south we could see our destination, the peak of Mount Nebo! It jutted up from the ridge and was pretty prominent and epic looking.
Excited, we almost hurried now in the improving light.
We carefully made our way and finally reached the summit and were rewarded with an amazing view of various mountain ranges within sight, a blue sky, and a bright and very warm sun.
It's a cool feeling to be doing things not many others dare or make the time to do. Every experience I have ever had out in nature has been a good one and I never regret it, even if something bad did happen or if there were setbacks.
That fact and the experiences that I gain every time I head out on the trail to explore keeps me going back and wanting more, always wanting to go somewhere new, to push myself and inspire others to get out and do something exciting.
