new heights

Failure is not fatal. Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. It should challenge us to new heights of accomplishments, not pull us to new depths of despair. From honest failure can come valuable experience. 
--William Arthur Ward (1921-1994) American author, pastor and teacher.

It was a lot colder than it looks. And colder than I was expecting atop Round Bald yesterday. Forty-five and gusty kept me moving fast in an attempt to stay warm. But it was all worth it to see the sun break through the clouds and light up the path before me. Note to self: Always bring the heavier jacket to Roan.

  1. A nice place to be regardless of the weather. Got caught in a rainstorm last time I was there. I love how you always start a post with a quote to inspire!
