I took this photo this morning on our annual Christmas morning hike. It was beautiful up near Brainard Lake and we were alone for the two mile hike. (Though the parking lot was full when we returned to our car.)

It’s Christmas and this story starter can take many paths. Consider starting it with a woman hiking on Christmas morning with her dogs. Maybe she meets a man who needs help.

Or maybe your story ends up here with two people on a special holiday hike. How did they end up here? Write your story backwards.

Have fun and Happy Holidays!
