Mount Sanitas "Trail"
Ali asked me if I wanted to go on a "more challenging" hike, and I said yes. It was, indeed, more challenging!

Mount Sanitas Trail lies just outside residential Boulder, and the views from the ridgeline to which the trail leads are endless and beautiful. Of course, you have to get up there first, which is fun given the 1300 foot altitude gain during the first mile and a half of the hike (from a starting altitude of 5,400 feet or so). I haven't felt so feeble since I was an 11-year-old hiking through central Oregon with an enormous canteen and backpack full of fossils and random crud.

In short: the hike was fun, but hard.
