There’s a concept on the AT known as the “freedom step”.
When the trail is very wet and muddy, a hiker can spend a lot of time skipping from rock to rock to avoid getting his/her feet wet.
Today the trail was ridiculously wet from all the recent rain.
At some point the likelihood of maintaining dry feet becomes very small and the hiker takes a “freedom step”
It’s a great feeling, once you take the plunge.
Only in Murica!
Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.
You got that right, Linda!
That is adorable!
