Training

Adventure beckoned. Today I rambled up Falls Creek with a 60 lb. pack with one goal in mind: An 8-9 hour adventure. Anybody who has ever carried a heavy pack, knows how unbelievably slow and difficult it is to travel uphill. I long for the day when I can simply go light and move quickly, unburdened by gear. With weather and conditions on my side, I made it to about 4,300 feet before deciding to abort the South Suicide Peak attempt--just plain ran out of time! Thank you God for a safe and enjoyable day in the mountains!
