It was a lovely morning for a hike. I made it all the way to the summit...usually I turn around when there’s about 1km left. I’ve nicknamed that area ‘my nemesis’.
Nice job conquering your "nemesis". Very inspiring as are your photos. So beautiful. Reminds me of the northwest. My husband is from northern Idaho in the panhandle. Always awed at the beauty when I visit the area.

Beautiful view! I don't think we'll be doing any trail hikes in this area until it dries out. The ground is pretty soggy out there right now.
Yes x 3
Finally went to the cardio boot camp, (vs strength boot camp) even though it was a goal of mine for the month...took 19 days to get there! It was hard of course, but I'm pretty pleased that I was able to keep up. Sore today which feels great! I wish I had started it weeks ago... Now I know it's not as scary awful as I imagined.4
bocasdelgrandpabob Posts: 73 MemberI got this weird new fitness ambition for this summer. There is this race called the Leadville 100 mtb. Now I can't do a 100 miler anymore. That ship has sailed for me. But on that course I know what the best parts are.
There is a seven mile stretch that goes from 9,000 to 12,000, more or less.
That is what I do. I climb. Sometimes I think I would rather ride up a hill than down it.
But a 3,000 foot climb, my usual practice is a 2,000 foot climb. So it is a bit stiffer of a climb.
So what? Oh, I almost forgot, rarefied air. My practice is a few thousand feet lower.
This planet's world class athletes can do that climb in a shade less that an hour. That pans out to seven miles per hour. I know I can't do that. Hey, I am a old guy.
But if I could do that climb in two hours, I give my self some kind of prize. Trying to think of what. I have a feeling I am going to get that prize no matter what.
Anyway, guys that knows about Strava, that climb is called Columbine Mine.
Watch for a crazy old guy pushing his bike up it. He will have a tent at the bottom of the hill either that or behind the laundromat.
That crazy old guy has finally clawed back to his pre-December climbing weight.
Anyway, I don't know why I think that kind of stuff is fun.
I guess I just like to be outside and am too hyper for fishing.
