Hitched While Hiking
Adam and Eva
After nearly three weeks of being apart frommy beau and hell of office work load, a romantic getaway to the mountains soundedwonderful. Hiking has always been the best burnout sport for me and Adam, infactit was in one such advent that I had met him. This time, we were taking thepopular Maroon Lake Trail, Colorado and I was really excited. We started offearly climbing along the trail, which meandered through the forests, acrossbarren scree fields and up the switchbacks.
The view on the way was splendidand though I was tired by mid-day, one just couldn’t stop and admire the beautythat surrounded us. After a while, however Adam took my hand and led me off themain trail, which was slightly visible as it was not much used. Puzzled, Iasked him why he was leading us the main trail but he just smiled and led meon. About half an hour of hiking up the track, it opened up on to a cliff andthe view was breathtaking. The rock face was a sheer drop and it was surroundedby snow-clad mountain tops and in middle was a lake, which was a shade of themost striking blue.
The view was nothing short of amazing but whatcaught my attention the most was that a few paces short lay a perfectly set outpicnic complete with red and white blanket. It had all been arranged beforehand by Adam and when I stared at him astounded, he had the most satisfiedimpish grin on his face. With a wink he tugged me along towards the picnic spotand poured us some chilled champagne. We just sat there for a while withoutspeaking, enjoying the site as well as each other’s company, in that instant hetook my hand into his, and asked me to marry him. In that very moment fromsomewhere along he brought out an exquisite asscher cut diamond engagementr ring. Though I was bewildered by the unexpected proposal and the beautiful ring,I had no doubt in my mind and with joy screamed “yes”, which echoed off thecliff and came across as multiple “yes”. He laughed and tugged me to him andkissed me.
Each time I look at my perfect engagement ringI am truly grateful to Fascinating diamonds for their help in selecting it.
