Before my hike, I fueled up on some oats and crunchy peanut butter. I had about two bites, left the room, and when I cam back my oatmeal was gone. Grumples…
Crowder’s mountain is about an hour from where we live. So we took off around 11am. We had a long hike planned.
There were several trails you could choose from. We chose the hardest one…Ridgeline. We had to sign a form in order to hike it. They wanted to make sure we were alive by the time they all went home at night.
The trail started off pretty flat. It got super steep, but I love the challenge!
I couldn’t believe all the dogs that climbed the mountain. Grumples would have given up miles back.
Won’t lie…we stopped like every mile after the first couple. Those hills were killer.
But we finally made it to the top:) Unfortunately the top is only the end of the Pinnacle trail. Ridgeway had five more miles up.
I made it a point to flip onto every bench. I felt like being a spider monkey.
Someone knows whats up.
I’m not a huge sweater, but we were drenched by the time we got done. We had a pool with our name on it after our hike.
I made a mistake of not bringing my backpack. I just had one little bottle to last me. So if you ever plan on hiking the Ridgeline, bring more water! You can always pee in the bushes.
If that tree would have cracked in half….
After making it back down, we headed over to the lake where they have kaiaking. If we weren’t so exhausted we would have hopped on one! Maybe next time.
