I climbed a mountain a few days back (with my very fit pals Rico and Patrick).
The summit of Wind Mountain is a noted archaeological site. It’s the sacred land of the native population where a ceremonial spirit quest was said to be held.
It was a wicked hike. I almost died 49 times. Not really. But, it was rough!
A huge wind storm (go figure) had knocked down lots of big ole trees and they were blocking the trail. So, “moderate” trail difficulty moved into the “difficult” category pretty quick.
It was great.
