Miles Hiked4.7 miles
Definitely starting to feel better about my trip next month.
I did 4 laps on that loop, plus about 2 miles that were easier to get to/from that area for a total of 3.5 miles. Considering the Half Dome round trip is around 15 miles, I have a ways to go. That said, I could have gone much longer physically if I had the time, but we had other plans for the day.
I rolled my ankle about 10 minutes into the hike (a common occurrence with these ankles unfortunately). That aside, I think it went pretty well and that I might actually do OK at Half Dome in September.
Hi, my name is Scott.
I used to be an avid hiker, but then I got a job at a desk, writing software. Read more about me.
Over the last several years I haven’t done anything active, let alone hiking. It shows.
Well, I’ve been invited on a hike in September. We’ll be climbing Half Dome in Yosemite.
I’ve got a lot of work to do in order to be able to make it. So I figured I’d start up a blog on this domain I’ve been sitting on for a couple years. I plan to write about “my journey and my journey to the journey.” By that, I mean not only will I write about the trip itself, and other hikes I intend to take, but my path to re-conditioning myself.
I’m not sure how often I’ll update this site, but I am committed to getting up more and getting out more.
