Big Niagara Falls The last real trail shelter. It was sad to read through the register - a source of laughs, information, mockery, and insight - and for the last time feel in touch with those whom I have known.

It is exciting to know that a mere 18.6 miles away stands the end of the line and a dream fulfilled. Fulfilled? Finalized. The dream was fulfilled miles ago, in bits and pieces and in many different ways, so many its hard to know when fulfillment occurred.

It is scary to know that in 40 hours I will have to take the new me and walk back into the world with out white blazes to guide the way.

It is comforting to know I have what it takes to succeed in the goals I choose to pursue.
