Ascent Trip ReportAnother great weather day, maybe even a few degrees too warm. Fresh snow on top of Washington made for a stunning view from the few spots we could peak out of. Very little ice left on the trails we hiked.
Close to 8 hours on the trail for an 8.5 mile hike
Crazy stairs on the way down from Willey
The two new guys finished 15 minutes ahead of the vets, must be nice to be 22
#s 10, 11, and 12 for me and Matt - 25% done!!
I had some kind of head cold, which I'm blaming for the nasty calf cramps on the way up
Flo looked like she tried to shave her Achilles with an old razor Magic cocktail of Gatorade, Advil, and beer made everything feel better
Exit 28 Pizza is becoming the go-to dinner spot
