Much to my surprise Joe had never visited Mt. Kimball. He wanted to make an attempt at hitting the top in an hour and thirty minutes. This sounded nearly impossible to me as my best time so far was around 2 hours.

Yes super humans have done it at his desired pace and even faster. Still I knew that was a lofty goal. I told him I was planning on hitting it in 2 hours and hopefully a tad quicker.

We arrived at a little after 8am and he gave me a head start. The whole way up I pushed at a moderate to brisk pace. I would have pushed harder but feared I would exhaust all my energy.

Staying on trail went smooth and I hit the top in 1:48. A new record for me which was cool. About a minute later Joe arrived. He had missed a couple turns and his watch had .2 of a mile more than mine. His time: 1:43! Wow pretty impressive for never even doing this one before and taking a couple wrong turns.

I'm thinking on his next trip he may just get that 1:30.

Outside of the race to the top this one was great as always. There were several flowers in bloom and still a bit of water in the canyon.

Good times.
