This hike felt much better. I was still a little sore from last week's climb, but for the most part I just took my time and kept moving. I made it to the top by taking one step for every 2 deep breaths. I'm still wearing a Heart Rate Monitor that beeps warnings at me all the way up, but I am determined to beat it and make it to the top without a stop...or a rest step. ;)

Many lizards were seen today... and according to another hiker, we almost ran into a rattle snake.

The climb was very difficult for me today. My legs were still burning after Friday's climb. I made it to the top tough.

Wow... It took me a while to get to the top today. I had 20 pounds in my pack. I did it though!

For some reason this was probably the hardest trip I've gone on so far. Many things could have contributed to it. I had the sniffles, so it was hard to keep my breathing even. It was much hotter as well.

We opted to go down the mountain on another trail that had a lot of loose rock, however it was much easier on my knees. Didn't do much for my nerves though, Ha! I will go down on this trail again. I found it satisfying to face my fear of falling.

This hike up Telegraph was much more pleasant than the last. I was able to keep my heartrate down and only had to stop a couple of times. I also wore hiking boots which made the rocky trails less slippery. Also, it's two days later and I'm not that sore. I can't wait to do it again!

Wow... I am completely out of shape. My heartrate kept spiking to 200. I had to stop many times along the way and I was sore a week later.
