I climbed a huge mountain

and lived to blog about it.

My sweet BF and I have been doing a lot of hiking this year. I seem to be quite content with hikes that don't test my will to live, but (thankfully) my better half likes to make sure we are always challenged.

Our newest conquest was the big Mt Woodsen and it proved to be the challenge we were looking for.

About a little less than a quarter of the way up we passed this huge water tank.

Okay, my legs are already tired. That water tank is getter smaller though...

By this point I have considered laying down and letting a wild animal make me his lunch.

That water tank is really small now and I kind of feel like I'm on top of the world.

And as soon as I think I can't take another step - I reach the huge 2600 foot payoff.

Yes, I may have shed a tear or two. I also may have threatened to turn back before reaching the top of the mountain, but I didn't. I was exhilarated and exhausted all at the same time once I reached the summit.

We took a few minutes to feel what it was like to stand on top of the world and then turned around to make the trek back down.
