I've had those kinds of runs before...but not yesterday. My 9.5 mile ascent/descent of Bergen Peak in Elk Meadow Open Space was a slog.
Funny thing was that it started out good. It was a perfect fall day. I climbed well up the Bergen Peak Trail, but as soon as I hit the hidden little social trail that climbs the south side of the final stretch to the top, things got tougher.

All-in-all, though, a fine, fine weekend doing things that matter:
Hiking in the Bergen Peak State Wildlife Management Area with CP and dogs Maya and Cisco.
|CP and Cisco with Mt. Evans in the distance.|
Flying high with jP on Sunday afternoon.
Life is good.
