What Did You Do This Weekend?

I climbed a mountain. That's right, a goddamned mountain. Mt Sunshine is along the Johnson Ridge Trail, about 55 miles from our house along Route 2 towards Leavenworth. We camped by the Skyhomish river, and drove up to the trail early Saturday morning. By ten o'clock, we were climbing. By noon, we were standing on the peak, looking at a panoramic view of the Cascades. The hike included an 800-foot change in elevation (and my legs feel it!) and was about 5 miles round trip.

I slept great Saturday night, and last night, and now I'm back at work. Frankly, I'd rather be going up another mountain.
