I need to get in shape for my trip to the Enchantments at the end of the month. I know I'm out of shape, but the hike I did on Sunday solidified it. It's Tuesday and I'm still hobbling around the office.
My quads are killing me. The hike was almost 4000 feet elevation gain in 4 miles to the summit.
It started out mellow for the first half mile. Then it was all up from there.
Steep switchback after steep switchback.
It was hard.
And the decent was just as bad. It made my knees ache.
But it was totally worth it.
