This is not far off my experience of solo hiking. My internal monologue revolves around 5 subjects;

1) OMG is that a bear? (answer: no it is a stump/rock/shadow/the sound of the tips of your own hiking poles rustling the bushes)

2) don't roll an ankle don't roll an ankle don't roll an ankle

3) am I there yet

4) no one will actually know if I quit now and say I made it

5) oooohhh photo opportunity, this will be my best "shot of a trail winding through alpine meadows" ever!
