Ascent Trip Report

Finally our last peak, the day was long, my pack was heavy and everything is sore. I have slowed down considerably, because I am fatiqued and don't want to hurt myself in haste of hurrying down the mountain. The trails are full of leaves, thick mud, and water. We start preparing for the loss the last bit of daylight by taking out our headlamps. The night hiking was cool at first but it became old news when we had to cross over brooks several times. I mean really how many times did my foot guess at where to step to avoid the water and be wrong? At one point, I just had to walk through the water, because I didn't want to hop on a slippery rock only to fall in pack and all. I actually fell once and couldn't get up because the weight of my pack and lack of strength kept me grounded. I needed help to get up. The last mile or so was exhausting...never was I so glad to see the end of a trail. Note to self...take a break from backpacking until the weather is warmer, dryer and brighter. This is the most memorable peakbagging yet! But I'll be back at it soon enough...2 weeks to be exact.
