While discussing sedentary significant others over the healthful Trois Bieres et Frites at the Winchester on Sunday night, Claire and I decided we should lead by example and actually do something about it.

Unfortunately, I've been fighting some holitaint illness from my recent travels, and didn't know if I'd have the energy to hike. Luckily, when I woke up in the morning, I felt good enough, and headed out with a pack full of sore throat lozenges, spray, decongestant, dayquil, and a few other pick-me-ups... just in case.

I know these hikes are on a couple of people's wish lists so I sent a text or two, but didn't bother with 1-800, since he was already suffering from a New Year's Day hangover. Or something.

Word to anybody attempting this route from the west. There are numerous Private Property signs. Looks like this particular access point is well regulated by the property owner here.

So once we figured out where to start from, we headed up the ridgeline. It was steep and fun. Temps were perfect. Fun climbing near the top. We ended up heading down the southeast ridge, which led steadily toward the south. It was slower going down. Once the grade moderated we swung around back toward the truck, trying to stay a reasonable distance from the homes that surround the mountain. No gunshots were fired.

After a visit with Daisy next door, we headed for a delicious celebration at the Crown & Anchor. A good day all around!
