yep, felt a bit like I was walking this trail in my sleep as I only had five hours. Nonetheless, here I was on one of my favorite trails enjoying the nice temperature and occasional nice breeze and not a horde of hikers. I'm likin' this part of my retirement. I did Sidewinder/Apache Vista first and then on Ridgeback and up. I handled the hill well I thot. I chatted with an older biker at the top of Ridgeback about critters we had run across while out and discussed various areas we bike/hike.

But now I had a mission, get down this mountain so I could enjoy a huckleberry morning.

Watch: 5.71 miles in 2:02:20 at 2.8 avg speed, 129 bpm (max 158) and 23 min in Zone 5, 50 in Zone 4 the rest in Zone 3 aerobic. Burned 804 calories :) (just imagine what the rest of you do on some of your hikes!) 62.5 degrees in 37% humidity altho the humidity didn't seem that high.
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.
