The Hike Today I decided to do a longer hike as I hadn’t done one in a while. Longer hikes tend to kick my butt on the way down due to a knee injury courtesy of the Navy. […]
The Trip Started out at around 0430 for Grass Mountain. I was excited to do this mountain due to it was my first SOTA peak I did when I started a little over a year ago. This one […]
