Thursday, 06/24/10 Green Mountain
Because of a mistake(s) courtesy of Comcast, I had to waste the entire morning not getting outside. It wasn't until early afternoon where I had a chance to finally get out and I had grand plans to run Green/Bear/SoBo. I started "running" up Amphitheater trail and it was immidiately obvious that simply summiting Green today would be a lofty goal. It was so hot, I was just draining my hand bottle of electrolyte drink and if I had not restrained myself, it would have been gone halfway up. Several minutes in (or 1:30 to be exact), I elected to just hike this one out. I jogged perhaps 5 percent of the ascent and was surprised to see a fair amount of other people out there. Conditions were perhaps equally as miserable as the coldest/snowiest day this past winter.
