Lions and Tigers and..Oh. Just Bears.

Hi All! 

Just wanted to let you know I'll be MIA for the next week as I hike in Fagaras. 
Keep me in your thoughts. After the last informational meeting I found out I only have to worry about the vipers, high winds, very steep and potentially dangerous mountain sides, possible storms, bears, OH and freezing temperatures at night. And apparently we keep the food in our tent?! I'll be the crazy one trying to tie it up in a tree somewhere, faaar away from where I'll rest my head at night. (Or does that make me the smart one?)  I hear that one day we're doing a 16 hour hike so I've packed the appropriate amount of band-aids for potential blisters and my extra thick, wonderful REI socks. I've packed non-perishable food for the week (which yes, includes pork pate) and enough Advil to keep my muscles feeling OK.

  Anyways, in all seriousness I am totally stoked about this trip, its something I've been looking forward to all year and I hope that my pictures will help to show you how amazing these mountains are. Catch you next week!!

(these obviously aren't my pictures..just a peek into what I'm about to tackle.)
