First Mountain Peak!
On June 16th, we set out to redeem ourselves and yet again tackle the great Mount Olympus. On our first attempt, we were not ready to tackle it. I was not well prepared and a short ways into the hike I already had a pretty good blister forming. My socks were too low, sliding off my feet, and not providing my heel any protection from my shoes. Mike was prepared, as he always is, but was not physically capable that day. He had to take several pit stops on the side of the trail, if you know what I mean. Needless to say, we turned back and ventured we would tackle it some other time.
