This was a tough hike for me. I'm not sure what was wrong, but I was off from the beginning. When I made it up to the Baldy Lodge I stopped and ate a sandwich, hoping that would give me the energy that I lacked. Nope.

Better judgment would have me not summit today. Since the round trip drive for this hike is over 200 miles, better judgment is out the window. So up I went. It took me almost 4 hours to hike 5.4 miles. I was really sucking wind. Actually, I wasn't. My breathing was off. Nevertheless, I got some good photos up there.

On my way down and really considering buying a list ticket for a ride down to the parking lot. The lift ride would save me 1,500 vertical feet of hiking. It's all downhill on the trail, so I skipped the lift and hiked down.
