I've got all my ducks in a row. My career is on track, my car is in fine shape, and a place to hang my hat. Also, I'm fiscally responsible. Other than credit cards, that I pay in full every month, I have never been in debt.
Hiking is one of my favorite outdoor activities. Best hike this year has been Dirty Harry's Peak. Half the trail was hiking through a running river bed. The terrain was unforgiving, but the sights were absolutely breath taking. Lots of waterfall painting the hillsides. The trail mostly under tree cover, with the occasional reward of an open vista.
Towards the top, we decided to take a side trail, not on the map, to be welcomed by a series of long and steep switchbacks. At the top, there was a large haystack, rock pile, several hundred feet tall. It was so steep that my buddy and I had to get on all fours and climb it. The view up above was very rewarding.
