Ha, this 2700 feet is hard work!

So close...........just didn't have the motivation, strength or stamina to make it for the last uphill push to reach the planned destination.....(yet).

It was a very slow trip up Carney and the most elevation I've done in a long, long time. It was slow because I was slow. I used every opportunity to visit (and rest) with others coming down the trail. The views were more stunning than I remembered, how could I forget? I stretched out and got comfy leaning against a few boulders while enjoying the peaceful surroundings & amazing scenery on the Ridgeline while Eric reluctantly pushed on without me.

This hike was a fine reminder of how far I have to go still to regain all that has been lost while I've been lounging on the couch............oh, how I have missed the burn! One step/hike at a time.

Can't wait to do it again......soon......as soon as this quad pain goes away.
