|Mark and Diana --taken in Wears Valley, before our hike|
I was nervous before the hike because, since getting A Fib, my hiking days are definitely limited. I don't talk much about my A Fib anymore --but I can assure you that it is still with me, and has certainly made me change my lifestyle to a much-less-active person. I don't like that change --but for me, it is just the 'new' normal!
I was excited when we took this hike ---and my family is always so good to me, allowing me to hike at my SLOW pace and stopping to rest as needed (when my heart rate goes WAY up).... The good news is that I MADE IT to the cabin and back --which was about 4 miles total. AND it was worth all of the aches and pains I felt the next day!!!!! ha
Hope you enjoy our pictures from this special day! Before the hike, we stopped at a general store in Wears Valley and took some Autumn Pictures....
|Oh how I love this young lady. She makes Mark SO happy!!!! (That is what a Mom loves to hear!)|

|Behind the cabin, there was a big rock next to that big tree... I'll bet that Mayna Avent sat on this rock working on her art!!!!!!|
