I finally feel like it’s time for me to come out and explain why I haven’t been hiking much in the last few months and tell the story of what happened to me on my last hike, Midnight Peak. I’m hoping this will give people a laugh and possibly help teach others to stay within their limits when climbing mountains. Yes it is good to push yourself, but sometimes you can pay for it. In this case, I paid with my butt cheeks, haha!
I’ve often been asked the question “what do you get out of hiking?” To answer that question in only one sentence would be nearly impossible for me, so I figured I would sum up a few of the reasons why I love being in the mountains in this first blog post. They are reasons that I’m sure many fellow outdoor enthusiasts would agree with.
