Hike-a-thon, Hiking, TNAB

HaT#11: Margaret Lake and Mount Margaret

Our participation in TNAB this year was pathetic. We made it to one. (We had a chance to redeem ourselves at the TNAB Turkey Burner after Thanksgiving, but we elected to sleep in and eat leftover pie in bed instead.)


But aah, the one we did join, Mount Margaret, is one we seem to make it to every year – and it happened during Hike-a-Thon, which seemed appropriate.

At this point I had realized that I would be able to make it to 100 miles for the month, so JK, Dani and I ran down to Margaret Lake for extra mileage.

Remember how Josie had made her ACL kneehab trail comeback just a couple of days before? Well, since she’s mental, she chose TNAB as her second hike. That trail is fine until you get to the end, where there, well, is no trail. And it’s steep. And you go down in the dark. Mental, in the very best way.

Otherwise it was business as usual for TNAB. Drinking…

Zeus just whipped him

…splendid views…

Oh, Mount Margaret

…a beautiful sunset…

First TNAB of the year

…and a vow that next year, next year we will make it to more of these.
