The Canyon Sting


Well, I got stung by a bee in a canyon.  I do not think I have been stung by a bee in decades and it was not entirely pleasant.  However; I was in nature ~ surrounded by beauty ~ and I did NOT let it derail my outdoor activity or steal my joy.

Do you know people who let one bad thing ruin the whole event?  Or heck, even several bad things?  I know I do.  Sometimes it’s somewhat justified and sometimes it’s beyond ridiculous.  Guess what, things will go wrong.  You will get uncomfortable.  You will need something you don’t have.  You will get lost.  You will get sweaty.  You will be tired.

This just names a few possibilities.

Tell me; how is your attitude when things go awry?  Can you laugh at yourself.  Let me tell you something, learning to laugh at yourself and your circumstances is truly a beautiful thing.  Trust me.

Yes, I was in a canyon.  Yes, I got stung by a bee.  Yes, I even got rained on in my hiking adventures.  No, I did not let it ruin my day.  Not even a little tiny bit.

Here are a few pictures from my adventure in Palo Duro Canyon State Park.  You can click the link but here is a sneak peak.

As always, make champion choices,
