Ascent Trip Report

Drew and I did this trip together the weekend before Thanksgiving. On the way up we picked cotton and he shopped for what he wanted for Xmas on my phone. Miss Vickie at the Bed and Breakfast was very nice and she prayed over our breakfast. We grilled burgers that night after our ascent. The first and last part of the hike were pretty boring. It was flat and basically a cow pasture and it was long. The ascent up the mesa and walking across the mesa to the highpoint was pretty. It was a long 8 miles but I'm glad we did it- and most importantly we did it together. I was reminded on several occasions what a beautiful heart Drew has. When we were leaving he wrote Miss Vickie a thank you note and left it for her in our room. Completely unprompted. We watched all the Bourne Identity movies in our room that weekend and ate tons of cookies. We got to use Miss Vickie's son's telescope and saw an amazing meteor burn up across the night sky on our way there. It was huge and looked like a plane or space shuttle coming across the sky really low. The morning we headed home we stopped at the three corners marker of OK, NM and CO. The ascent was tracked in Runkeeper.
