So, this past Friday, I got to g on my first hike of the season!! I decided to do a shorter one since I was just coming back. I weighted down my new Camelbak backpacking pack and hit the trail. I decided to do Hamilton Mountain on the Washington side of the Gorge. It is about 6.5 miles round trip. A school bus of kids pulled in behind me, so I hit the trail without warming up.
An hour and 15 minutes later I was at the summit. It was a gorgeous day and the views were breathtaking, as usual.
If you have never hiked in the Columbia Gorge, you are missing out!!
It took me a good 2 hours to get down, ambling as I went. I wasn’t in a hurry to descend, so I took my time.
The next morning, I could not move!! I cannot believe how incredibly sore I was! All the more reason to go out and do it again, right??? I am hoping to squeeze in as many hikes as I can this summer.
Anyways, totally unrelated……
I love reading blogs! There are sooo many wonderful bloggers out there! Today, I want to give a little shout out to the bloggers I like the most:
