Yesterday, Darien called at 7:30 in the morning to rouse me out of bed to go on a hike. I whined, I complained, but I couldn’t sleep anyway because the construction next door at Ponce City Market had started early. So I rolled out of bed and bundled up in my warmest winter gear, at least for a Georgian, and met up with the rest of the group to embark. By 8 AM, we were on the way to Arabia Mountain!
After about twenty minutes of walking down the paved path, we noticed a rocky area through the trees, and decided that way a way better option than the miniature road that led to Stonecrest Mall.
There was so much ice, every puddle was frozen over and there were some we though we could step on, but were wrong. I won’t say who, but someone (Tony), misstepped and landed his shoes in icy water. Whoops!
Every time a plane flew over we tried to take a picture so it looked like Kelsey was pinching it. Almost!
At the top, all of the potholes (which Dustin later told me was from lightning strikes) had ice on top. Darien picked one up and kicked it, which looked epic.
All in all, what a great day! I was originally planning to sleep in, but sometimes it’s better to say yes more often.
