A Daunting Task

Have you ever done something that seems impossible?  Does your current situation feel overwhelming?  Have you ever thought, “I could never accomplish that!”  Have you ever asked yourself, “How do I climb this mountain?” The answer: “ONE STEP AT A TIME!”

Well, I was going through my archives tonight just poking around, and found this gem.  I was living at the Grand Canyon at the time, and decided to go hiking into the Canyon with a friend.  It was an easy five miles down to Plateau Point.  The view was spectacular.  However, this was in November when the days are extremely short.  The hike back to Indian Gardens wasn’t too bad, but then I looked up and saw this:

I thought: “How in the world am I going to get back up this?”  One step at a time.  Needless to say, we made it back to the top well after dark, and assisted a few unfortunate people who didn’t have flashlights, food or water.  One of them was very upset because her friends had left her because she was too slow and wasn’t sure they were waiting for her at the top.  It was a tough situation to be in.
