TimpanogasThis last weekend I hiked Timpanogas. I went as far as the Emerald Lake, which is not the summit, but it's waaaay up there. The hubs tells me I went about 10 miles and 11,000 feet high. So I feel pretty proud, seeing as how I kind of wanted to fall down and do the ugly cry several times.
Honestly, I don't really get the appeal of hiking. I like being in nature, but I don't particularly enjoy suffering in nature. I just wasn't physically prepared so it was kind of hard to appreciate the beauty around me. But at least now I can brag about it, right?
And to Greg, Becky, Trevor, and Keri: thanks for being patient with my snails pace and for cheering me on. Especially Keri. She was like my life coach on that mountain, and she only owes me like....half a pony. BELAY ON!
To that guy who called me a heathen: well that was just offensive. ;)
But seriously, there is a nice sense of community on the mountain. The people on the trail look out for each other. People were friendly, courteous. Food is shared with strangers. Some dude gave me and Becky water when we ran out on our way down. It was nice to see.
This song seems appropriate. Plus, I am seeing these dudes in two days! Woot-woot!
