I think I might finally be recovered from our hike this last weekend. On Sunday we got up at 5:30 am and hiked about 11 miles to the top of 2 mountains; Flattop Mountain and Hallet Peak. We climbed over 3,000 feet to almost 13,000 feet above sea level. It was a steep hike up, and I didn’t eat enough, so by the end I was not feeling great. Elevation, hard work, and not enough food = Erin feeling like she is ready to lose her lunch while trying to scramble up the last 500 feet of elevation. My husband and I actually did this hike 8 years ago, and wanted to do it again with our 9 year old. We finally did it this summer, and he did awesome! Getting to the top of a mountain, and looking out over everything is just breath taking. You seriously feel like you are on top of the world! There are easier hikes to get to the top of mountains, but it is something I think everyone needs to see in their lifetime.
