I hope you get to do so!Hoping to apply this tip at some point in my life.
Yes, yes, we know. Not everyone is born with a horseshoe up their butt.I just use a pass for that.
I think the hardest hike we have done so far was in Utah: the hike to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. It was 1.5 miles one way, and basically straight up. Plus it was hot and I had 30 lbs. of baby on my back.What was?
As far as the "worst" hike goes...I'd have to think about it. I've tried hard to make sure that whenever we hike, there's a payoff at the end. The worst hikes were probably some of the ones from my childhood, where we often walked in heat and mosquitoes for hours just to see trees.
Probably a bit of both, weighted toward the latter. I'm sure it's harder to get supplies, etc. to a remote location. But mostly I would suspect the law of supply and demand at play.Much better bargain.
I wonder if they have to charge that much... for overhead/maintenance/etc... or just because they can.
Wow, that's cool! Was your grandfather seriously hurt?Fun fact:
My grandfather was one of the patients at the Awahnee during the time it was used as a Naval hospital after his ship was torpedoed. Been there a couple of times and was blown away at the artistry. LOVE the mission style used!
Thanks for sticking with me!Brutal!
Trying to get as many threads read as possible before a heavy work week coming up. The photos are lovely and I reallly enjoyed this chapter! Thanks for the great read, Mark!
