Sunday night I hiked Angels Rest with my friend Susan.
We started up the trail around 5:00 pm, going slow and taking several breaks for Susan’s hobby of letterboxing. I helped her plant a couple of new boxes, and was lucky to find a box as well.
We sat at the top for a couple of hours, swapping stories and waiting for the full moon to appear and enjoying a wonderful sunset against the Washington hills.
I did a moonlight hike of AR last summer with a big group of folks, and I remember sucking wind all the way up the trail. This time didn’t feel nearly as tiring. Which is a good thing.
