My friend Josie joined the 30 day challenge but decided it would need a better name (and, more importantly, an acronym). The winner was *drumroll* Get Off Your Ass, aka GOYA. As you can see, her first day was slightly more epic than mine.
Anyhoo, let’s move on to day two and the other acronym – TNAB! We joined the Thursday Night Afterburners on a hike to Mount Margaret tonight. We had already mounted Margaret (hah) with TNAB in early June when it was still snow-covered, but it’s definitely worth a trip in late summer when the huckleberries are out and the views are clear.
For some reason the hike seemed harder today than it did in the snow, but maybe we’re just walking faster now that the days are getting shorter. At least I had ample opportunities to stop and rest my legs while munching on berries. All thoughts of sluggish muscles were forgotten at the summit anyway; the views were fantabulous and the sunset spectacular. Even I don’t have to force myself off the couch for a hike like this one.
