Tie a Knot

Good morning.

I hope you slept early last night and ready for the steep challenge this morning. Though short, the slope may hold you back if you ever overestimate yourself.

Both moving ahead and turning back are difficult at current stage. Anyway, most people prefer not to go downhill using the jungle trail. Risk of knee injury is high when it absorbs the impact of the body weight while going through the roughness and gradient.

But Cerok Tokun is kind enough not to deter you away; "when you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on”. A few of you may be strong enough to laugh away this trivial matter, but who knows when you will need this.

I have not so far presented you a gift for accompanying me during my hiking. This simple green beauty is dedicated to every one of you, and our journey will continue. We can only discover new wonders when we keep moving, and "to keep our balance, we must keep moving" as well.

Have a good rest. No alcohol. No cigarette. See you tomorrow morning.

I'm glad we're going uphill rather than downhill. Thank you for the beautiful, delicate gift.

i am like you, i find downhill a lot more challenging than uphill, I had to walk on my butt sometimes to go downhill since I am so afraid of falling :(

love your shots and your creative thoughts to ponder.

Is that a rope to help you climb up. I know what slopes that have those are like!

rainfield, downhill for me is very difficult and I sometimes turn away out of fear. But, with you there, I can go anywhere. Thanks for your gift and I will see you tomorrow. No alcohol tonight?

The trail does look difficult, but with a rope to hang onto and you to guide we can move forward. Thank you for the beautiful green treasure.

Usually downhill is easier, but your adventure sounds treacherous. Hope tomorrow's adventure will yield more photo gifts.

I like your dark pictures on this section of our hike. They make things seem mysterious and fun. You are a very good hiking guide.

Very nice green gift, Rainfield!
Downhill is often harder, on foot as well as by car:)

Ratty said...

I didn't see you the next morning. I hope everything is okay with you, Rainfield.

Gorgeous photos!
