Clockwise from VC up the south side over to the western towers and powered up the paved hill and then up to the main towers and back down. Have to practice for my hike Monday with Kelly :y: as part of my retirement initiation. It's one of the first things I wanted to do when I retired so instead of reading about Kelly's Monday morning hikes, I would participate.

LOTS of people and LOTS of dogs (many misbehavin' but I never really blame that on them). A couple very overweight hikers and kudos to them; especially the one heading up the hill... I have to say I do worry about them. Most hikers were friendly but there were a few grumpies out there.

Air in the distance was "smazy" (I think that's the correct word); I tried to get a few pics.

Now let's compare the watch to RS:
Mileage RS 5.38, Watch 5.33
Avg speed RS 2.58 , Watch 2.5.
Watch doesn't do AEG but RS doesn't do Avg heart rate 129 bpm or calories burned 842 or temp 66 and humidity 27%.
For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
