Grab a book…it’s the lazy days of summer

The High Adventure of Eric Ryback Summer’s end is just around the corner, and before those lazy relaxed days pass you by, how about picking up a book to read. Check out Hiking Lady’s extensive list of book recommendations and reviews.

One of my favorites is a classic, now out of print book called The High Adventure of Eric Ryback. In 1970 the 17 year old young author set out to hike from Canada to Mexico, and in so doing became the first person to hike what would later be known as the Pacific Crest Trail.

Perhaps reading the hiking journeys of others will inspire you to plan some fall hikes as the weather cools down.

Happy trails!

Inspiration from a Blind Man Who Climbed Mt. Everest

Quote from Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind climber to scale Mt. Everest and author of Touch the Top of the World:

My friend Hugh Herr lost both legs in an ice-climbing accident; he became an engineer and developed prosthetic legs and feet made out of rubber, and he’s a better climber now than ever. I call people like him alchemists. You can pile a lot of lead on them, but they’ll figure out a way to transform it into something good. Life isn’t fair. You’ve just got to take what happens and make it work for you. So when I’m climbing some hard rock 1,000 feet up, I’m not thinking, “If I could see that hold up there, life would be so much easier.” I just think, “Thank God I’m up here.”
