A spontaneous trip to Wallace Falls have given me an opportunity to think how life is so much like hiking. There's so many different paths to choose from. Do you want to go up the upper part of the falls? Or the lower part of the falls? Want to take the bridge? Or risk being soaked by hopping on the rocks to get to the other side? Are you going to stop by and admire nature? Or are you going to zip through it, yearning to reach the finale of the journey at the top? Are you going to hop through the roots of the trees? Or completely avoid them altogether? Want to go through the complicated, unused trail? Or the beaten down yet smoother trail?
Plenty of ways to decide how you are going to go on with your journey. However, it doesn't matter which path you take. At the end, it's all going to end somehow as with anything else in life. But at the same time, the memories along the journey is yours to claim. And no one can take that away from you.
