24.0% "'Why I had neglected to bring a trekking pole, while not failing to bring a foldable saw, I did not know.' //facepalm"
27.0% "'It was because of this very singing' (to warn off bears) 'that I almost stepped on a rattlesnake, having failed to absorb that the insistent rattling that increased in volume was actually a rattle.' OH CHERYL. BB. OK I love her."
36.0% "'I'd come, I realized, to stare that fear down, to stare everything down, really - all that I'd done to myself and all that had been done to me. I couldn't do that while tagging along with someone else.' She turns down going with the guys! <333"
