Mailbox Peak

This weekend, I broke the (very) long streak of not hiking over the winter months and went up Mailbox Old Trail again. Boy, I am not in nearly the same shape I was when I went up the first time–it kicked my butt! There’s definitely still enough snow at the top to make the last scramble a little difficult without crampons, but we made it work. The forest was gorgeous and the air was crisp, and it made me remember just how restorative being outdoors can be for my mental health.

Anyway, legs are still sore and I’ve gained some motivation to get back in shape–I see more cardio and stairmaster in my future. Cheers!
