“Let’s go on a hike!” they said.
“It’ll be fun!” they said.
“I’m down to go. If it’s an easy hike.” Was what I told them.
After reading the difficulty level and looking up comments from past hikers, I knew this advanced-intermediate level hike would end up killing me.
I ended up paying $40+ to take the gondola up to the peak to wait 3 hours for my friends to arrive. And then got hungry after waiting 2 hours (bc I puked up the contents in my stomach) and got a burger and fries. I decided against the beer. As nice as that sounded.
Maybe I’ll make it my fitness goal this summer to be able to go on a hike without dying. Probably not one as difficult as this one though. Where it’s essentially vertical with actual climbing involved ?
