As I begin the big two-mile downhill, I'm reminded why I bother putting so much effort into reaching high places by human power
The feeling of self-sufficiency from travelling distances by one's own energy provides empowerment that exercise machines in a gym can't. A giant vanity pick-up truck doesn't provide this either, even though it would simplify travel across rough terrain.
The views from up here are awesome; I almost hate to return to Paradise Lake.
