Giant Mountain, May 2015

My first hike trying to get ready for Denali. I went an bought all the gear, so now I need to try it out!

Heading down from my quick trip up Giant Mountain I ran into a guy that asked “Did you do Rocky Peak Ridge?” Um… no. What the hell is that?

So he explains “It was right there. Then you could have done two today.”

It’s right there.

That quote gets heard often in the High Peaks. He proceeded to explain the 46 high peaks (I was only somewhat familiar) and pointed me to the Aspiring 46r page on Facebook. From there, I knew I’d have to start hiking again. Again as in I hiked once a decade+ ago.

I was another step closer…
