Winter/Spring 2007 | Archives Here
Welcome to the Winter/Spring 2007 issue of my ezine. Winter here in Northern Colorado was historically cold, snowy and dreary - not a combination this HSP enjoys or thrives in.
My family and I had the opportunity to welcome Spring in a most unusual way - hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon for two nights the
week of March 12th. It was an incredible adventure, one I am thrilled to have experienced. I survived the trip for two main reasons: 1 - my two strong sons carried everything in my pack after I insisted that "I could do it" (I couldn't) and 2 - the support of two strong knee braces. Going the 6.3 miles down the Kaibab Trail into the canyon was much more difficult than hiking out the 9.3 Bright Angel trail.
I think maybe only an Extraverted High Sensation Seeking HSP with a supportive family would venture into this type of activity. Would I ever do this again? No. Would I recommend it to others? Absolutely yes.
Now I am fortunate in that I get to look forward to the 2007 HSP Gathering Retreats that are planned: one on the West Coast in June, and the first one here in Colorado in October. I get many questions about the Gatherings, and have decided to write more about them here. First, I will refer you to two articles written back in 2001.
