We got outdoor time in both days last weekend! Sucess.
Seems like there is always so much to catch up on on the weekends we really have to make getting play time in a priority.
Cody of course wanted to climb Vista Peak. I had to check in with myself but I knew I wasn’t going to be up for that long of a climb in my current state. I’m good on level stuff but as soon as I start climbing or going uphill, I slow way down. So I knew we’d need to shorten our trip!
We paired it down to just heading to Blacktail Rocks which is about halfway between Baldy and Vista Peak. If you take the trail straight up without going off track to “look over this saddle” or to “check out what’s in this drainage”, it’s a 2 mile trek up. We changed things up and went up the backside/ north drainage to avoid Baldy and all the people hiking it. It was a new way for us. Worked out great because the climb was a whole lot less steap for this prego lady.
It was a beautiful 3 hour chunk of our day and I’m so happy we were able to do it. Getting fresh air and movement in makes life so much more enjoyable. Get out and move! It will make you way happier. Everyone wants to be happier, right?
