For today I will be playing along with CASology. Their theme this week is about the word 'rough'. I decided to take a different spin on the idea of 'rough'. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This scene is beautiful, majestic, and also very harsh and unforgiving. I am imagining backcountry camping is what you would need to do to see such splendor. But as many of you know backcountry camping is not glamping (click here for explanation). In fact, it is the polar opposite. You hike into the wilderness with everything on your back to survive and then a little extra just in case. I can say with absolute certainly it is 'roughing' it!!
Backcountry camping is something I did about eighteen years ago. Dix Peak is the sixth highest peak in the Adirondacks which is located in upstate New York, USA. This is the peak that was chosen for me as an introduction to backcountry camping by my husband. I am here to say the hike is just as much a mental workout as it is a physical workout. While hiking, I imagined my prize for summiting would be a fantastic view! Unfortunately, it was raining and we were above the clouds. No view... Bummer! But not really because I had the satisfaction of summiting one of the 46er's! WaHoo me!
Well that should do it for me. I hope you enjoyed your stay and my little story. I do appreciate your visits and thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet. We will see you soon. Take care and happy crafting.
