Sightseeing: Catalina Hike

As I’ve mentioned in my other two Catalina post I went hiking…I walked up a mountain, made it to the top, and walked back down. The way up was 100% uphill the ENTIRE time and then it was a crazy rocky dangerzone path on the way down…and I hiked it. In my book an actual real live hike is a big deal because I’m not a hiker by any stretch; a nice walk or an easy jaunt in the mountains is something I can do, but hiking and I are not known to cross paths (side note: I was once told to my face that I “wasn’t very outdoorsy”). This post is proof that I was indeed, at least for a day, outdoorsy.

I’m only smiling because I don’t know about the impending sore muscles.
