Bear/S. Boulder

9 miles
3,300 vertical

Hiked these two with Allison and Sierra at a leisurely pace from the S. Mesa TH with some long breaks on the summits. Tried out my new Chaco test shoes on trail for the first time. I really like them, but they are certainly not trail runners. Excellent grip on rock and very comfortable, stylish enough for a night on the town (in Boulder of course), (if you're into that sort of thing).
Was very thirsty at the end, as it got warmer than anticipated, 14oz just does not cut it for 3+ hours in the sun.
