So somehow I committed myself to hiking with a crazy man for a really long distance. :D For about the first 20 miles, it was almost not noticeable that we were actually hiking, the scenery was so incredibly beautiful, it totally distracted us. Once out of the oooh-ing and aaah-ing of the narrows sections, things started feeling a bit more difficult. I felt like I had 5 lb. weights on each one of my ankles pretty much the entire trip. With the caked on mud & sand & wetness, my legs got more of a workout on a no elevation hike than they do on some of my crazy elevationers! :o I happened to find a section of quicksand and quickly went up to my knees. John kept threatening that the next batch I stepped in, he was pushing me down. But I think this one was too early in the hike, and he needed company for a little while longer. Lucky for me I never found anymore! :GB:

This definitely got me ready & pumped for my rim cubed in a couple weeks. I think it might seem like cake after this hike. :-k ;)
