Lessons From The Trail

Watch Your Step

Everyone enjoys daydreaming now and then – humorous thoughts, events from earlier in the day or something planned for tomorrow, the face of a beautiful woman…

That’s what happened to me on my last hike to Hen Wallow Falls, near Cosby, Tennessee. I was on my way back to the parking area, after enjoying the 90-foot tall waterfall, following a downhill trail with many small rocks – and, a significant amount of mud from recent rainfall.

Rather than paying close attention to every step, I allowed my mind to wander to pleasant thoughts of a lovely lady from Lisbon, Portugal. A second later, my feet were airborne and I landed on my keister in the mud – D’oh! 😂
