Hiked Mission Peak for the first time 2 years ago (See my post, Conquering Mission Peak) and thought the trail with its steady incline was just the right intensity, but I was sore for a few days. I went up two more times since then, and it seems to have gotten easier each time. Little did I know there is a way steeper route to Mission Peak called the Horse Heaven Trail… as if the normal route isn’t enough! We took on the challenge and made it to the top! Felt accomplished and productive on a Saturday morning, especially after missing out on sleeping in at the start of this 3-day weekend. ‘Twas fun, hiking with good company and chillin’ with Pillar friends :)
Don’t know how sore I will be tomorrow… but happy Memorial Day weekend!
