Biggest walk so far! Joining my friend on her 6 day hike

I joined a really good friend of mine (Ella Crowe) who is also doing this fundraising walk for JDRF on her 6 day hike along the Heysen trail! I joined her in the afternoon on day three of her hike and walked with her until Friday.
It was quite an adventure with all the usual ups and downs of hiking like sore shoulders and  hips from where the backpack dug in, aching feet,  beautiful scenery that made up for all the cold and discomfort, coming up with ways to keep ourselves from thinking about how far we had to go or how much our feet hurt (truth questions were quite popular) and  some hiking through long wet grass that had covered the path. 
My favourite part of this hike would have been waking up on the last morning at 5am, getting out of our tent and seeing that where we had stopped for the night was covered in low hanging cloud that gave the whole world a quite, eerily beautiful feeling. It was quite surreal to be up before the sun and see the world slowly getting lighter and coming to life as we walked down the mountain we had spent the night on!

My Story

I'm doing the JDRF One Walk Challenge to raise awareness and funds for everyone who lives with the constant battle of T1D.  I've been living with T1D for roughly 3 years now and one thing that makes me feel like I can do anything, even with T1D, is walking so I thought why not do some good with it!
