H and I got back last night from six glorious days of hiking. We conquered nine new peaks (Garfield, Galeheard, Moriah, Madison, Middle Carter, South Carter, North and South Twin), backcountry camped, and faced many fears. Well…I faced many fears. The only fear H faced was that of running out of snacks–a danger only on our very last day when provisions started to get low. We met some great people on and off the trail, including the amazing Randy Pierce and his entourage. It was a wonderful chance to decompress and recharge in preparation for the next three busy months (difficult rotations, fellowship interviews, finishing up the move).
I will get pictures and stories up soon!
