A friend from out of town and I took an 8 mile day hike around Twin Lakes Trail. It was a quarter uphill, a quarter flat, and then the reverse on the return. 8 beautiful miles complete with old trees, a slot canyon, lakes, ponds, and one bajillion mosquitoes. I have never been bit by so many bugs in 5 hours in my life! My temples must be really tasty.
For being totally out of shape (this year I'm not training for any grueling backpacking trips), I did pretty decently. I did not die. I just took a lot of breaks. Slow and steady wins the race?
