Even if you aren’t able to take a nice vacation this summer you can still indulge in the approrpriately titled “staycation” at home. The beauty of a staycation isn’t only the money you’ll (hopefully) save by not splurging on a vacation, but the fact you can stumble upon some activities that you probably are overlooking in your own backyard. Sometimes a staycation includes some figurative travel outside of your comfort zone. I definitely ventured past the borders of my comfort zone this past weekend when I embarked on a mountain hike that was off the beaten path. There were multiple times I wanted to turn back, including but not limited to the moments when:
- The security guard warned us about rattlesnakes being very common in this area.
- I heard movement in a bush.
- We could hardly keep our footing climbing up the steep hill.

All of these things considered, getting to the top of the mountain was definitely worth it. All-in-all I was glad I made to the top.
