Anybody who hiked this mountain tells me, it is tedious walk. And it was. Creek walk is always tedious and yet makes foot tired because creek washes away trail and these rounded rocks make walking hard.

Mountains are big. Being in mountains makes me feel I'm like an ant. Look how small Trace is.

Trace always made fun of my magic wand. The stick I always pick up on the way up. There is a reason why people pay more than $100 for sticks. It's helps to keep balance, steady steps, yet lift the weight load to arms as well. He have not found the boots that won't give him blisters and he was in pain that day as always. My free magic wand helped him walking blister. Now he respects my magic wand.
