A friend posted this at Facebook, and it's spot on.
How my friends see my experience (the griz)
How my mom sees my experience (rescue helicopter)
How society sees my experience (homeless woman)
How dayhikers see my experience (massive pack)
How I see my experience (day pack-ultralighter)
My actual experience (crashed sideways in a blue tent)
A photo, or series of photos is worth a ton of words!
Happy Trails. If perception were reality, we'd all be gorgeous fools.
