Not much legal news out right now, so I’ve been trying to get out and explore the wonders of the Pacific Northwest. This week I completed my most grueling hike yet: a 26-mile hike with a 3200 elevation gain.
We started with an 8-mile hike to Waptus Lake, hung out for about an hour, then made our way for the remaining 5 miles to Spade Lake.
The last bit was some of the most physically exhausting work I’ve ever done, with a 2200 feet elevation gain in the space of about 2 miles.
The views at the top though were breathtaking, and we made camp there for the night where I enjoyed a well-earned cigar and hard seltzer (maybe some tequila too).
The trek down of course wasn’t as exhausting, but not without it’s own trials. I messed my toe up pretty bad, and my big toenail isn’t long for this world. Still, it was an amazing adventure and I’m glad I conquered it! Even if you’re not doing crazy things like hiking up and down mountains, try to get out and explore.
