Today, Ann and I climbed up more than half way to 4.1 miles. We had a 2,100 foot elevation increase on this wonderfully beautiful journey on a day with perfect hiking weather. Another key milestone for today was the fact that we reached 9,500 feet of altitude on the hike. That is the highest I have ever been hiking.
Both Ann and I were dying to get out of the house today. It was a beautiful day and also a bit chilly. So we bundled up and headed to nearby Battle Creek Canyon for about an hour of hiking.
