I won't post pics but also found airplane wreckage. I read that people died :(. After all these years I don't know why someone hasn't removed it.

The past 6 months have really taken their toll on me, but I am looking forward to the calendar changing to March 1st and the possibility of some good hikes.

This year, I am going to make them happen rain or shine.

Small hikes after work on weekdays, medium hikes on Sundays, and scheduling a day off every month to do big hikes in New Hampshire.

This is how I get off :shrugs:

Today (4/23) I finished hiking the Holyoke and Mt. Tom range in Western Mass.
 

The Holyoke Range is a traprock mountain range known for its anomalous east-west orientation, high ledges and its scenic character. 

 

This Spring I hiked:

 

Long Mountain

Rattlesnake Knob

Mount Norwottuck

Bare Mountain

Mount Hitchcock

The Seven Sisters

Taylor's Notch

Mount Holyoke

Mount Nonotuck, and 

Mount Tom

 

And I basically hiked the whole thing twice, because I made each Summit as a there-and-back-again hike

Mount Tom is the craziest one. I can't believe they even still let people hike it because the ledges are so steep and narrow.

I went on an Outdoor hike on the step machine today, as you walk it shows you visuals of a pine forest on the monitor. For 10 minutes I was ambling through nature, free of the stresses of the city.

I did the mountainhill Italy bike trek today in the gym. It’s chill just watching the snow capped mountains on the monitor as you climb. I could see some jacked lady in pink leggings in the mirror. They can see me losing weight. They respect wasted’s mission.

I haven't hiked in almost a year. Maybe Mt. Jefferson. I'd like to hike AZ if I'm lucky but probably not.

Flights to the SW are cheap. I used to hike Camelback and Piestewa Peak every day when I was there

It really is de ja vu with the 1996 Everest disaster. Traffic jam at the top and it ends up dangerous. Too many permits handed out.

 

The quarrel that followed the 1996 disaster really influenced my views.

Into Thin Air is one of my favourite books. I think about it. All the time

Today's a nice day to go hiking but I have too much to do. Maybe I'll hike in the rain tomorrow or sometime this weekend. I keep putting it off so maybe it will be winter before I do it again.

If my car broke down in winter...I'd die.  

 

I didn't know about the 94 degrees part. I don't recall hiking in that kind of heat but yeah that would have been dumb. Half my hiking decisions were made on the stop with zero preparation and 100% procrastination. Maybe I could have died today.
